TY MAJESKI JOINS NIECE MOTORSPORTS FULL TIME IN 2020

STATESVILLE, N.C. (Dec. 10, 2019) – Ty Majeski will drive the No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado at Niece Motorsports full time in 2020 in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. “I’m really excited for the opportunity to race full time with Niece Motorsports,” said Majeski. “I’m appreciative of Al and everyone at the team for giving me this opportunity. We’re looking to continue to build on what Ross and the team accomplished this year. We expect to be contending for wins and ultimately the championship.” In just its third full time season, Niece Motorsports and Ross Chastain earned one pole, three wins and 10 top-five finishes. In addition, Chastain captured the most stage wins and led the most laps. Chastain and the No. 45 team finished second in both the driver and owner point standings. “Last season was really a dream come true for me and this team,” said team owner Al Niece. “No one expected us to be contending for a championship in Homestead – but there we were. We’re confident that we can do the same next season. Ty is clearly extremely talented – he’s won in everything he’s driven. I’m excited to have him join the team full time. We’re looking forward to great things in 2020.” The 2019 season saw Majeski compete in six ARCA Racing Series events, earning wins in half of those starts. In addition to his three wins (at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Pocono Raceway and Chicagoland Speedway), Majeski also earned top-five finishes in all six starts and led a total of 112 laps. Majeski earned four wins in the ARCA Midwest...
Red Race 3 Laps Too Short

Red Race 3 Laps Too Short

6-13-19 Wisconsin International Speedway in Kauakuna, WI was the site for the beginning of the famed Red, White and Blue Series. The best of three races is awarded the esteemed championship for the combined events. Although Majeski has made several attempts in past seasons and came close, he has never taken home the overall championship. “It would mean a lot to put the Red, White and Blue Series Championship to my short track resume.” Reports Ty, “WIR is one of my favorite tracks and we run well here. There is usually a stout field so it would feel good to be able to take this one home!” After qualifying with fast time, Ty was inverted to the 12th position on the start of the race. The cars ran side by side for multiple laps leaving no opportunity to pass. As the laps wore on, things loosened up and he was able to put a few cars behind him. Meanwhile, the leaders stretched out in the caution free race. Ty passed the second place car with around 8 to go but it just wasn’t enough time to catch him and make the pass for the lead. Overall it was an exciting race and the 91 team was pleased with the results. “We needed a caution and we would have had it. The 91 iRacing, Crestliner, Ken’s Sports Treeo’s car was fast today, we just ran out of time. It was still a great points night for us.” When Asked if he was planning on running the whole series, Majeski confirmed that the team plans on running the white race on...
Three Times Lucky?

Three Times Lucky?

If bad luck comes in threes, Ty Majeski’s luck should change drastically in the upcoming events for him in the Xfinity series. “We just can’t catch a break” Says Ty, “We have good cars, or at least top 5-10 cars and we get ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.” At Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, Ty’s race was cut short by a tire issue after missing a wreck. He pitted to change the tire and was working his way through the pack when a wreck collected him, effectively ending his day. Moving on to Talladega, the team had a good piece. Ty was having a great run when his luck ran out again, getting tagged from behind by another car’s issue. A frustrated Ty and Team pulled themselves up, and moved on to the Dover race. Ty qualified well and found himself leading the race starting the second segment. His car lost 4th gear on the restart, was lifted by the car behind him and ended up breaking the rear axle. Just unbelievable luck so far. “I hate it for the guys at the shop, we all work really hard to get our cars right and it’s tough on all of us. We know we have competitive cars but we just haven’t been able to show that yet.” Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 26th is Ty’s next race. “That’s going to be a tough race but we are already preparing for it” Reports Ty. “I’m really hoping our finish at Charlotte will reflect what we actually have going on with the team and the car. Ty...

2018 Xfinity Schedule Kicks off on April 14

On March 28 and 29, Ty took to the track to practice and acclimate himself in preparation for the beginning of his Xfinity season. Ty will be piloting the number 60 Roush Fenway, Ford Performance car at the historic Bristol Motor Speedway on April 14 for the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 race. “Practice went well.” Says Ty, “The track was way different from any other that I have been on. It only took a few laps and I felt like I could push it a little and turned some pretty good lap times.” Ty went on to say that he felt pretty confident in the set up that they had for the big event on April 14. “We started out pretty good but managed to find a little more speed as the practice sessions went on. I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel in the 60 car again. It’s been a slow start to the 2018 season and I’m itching to race!” The race track is located in Bristol, Tennessee and boasts a reputation of having an aggressive, exciting race. “I’m a short track racer,” says Ty, “I grew up short track racing and it’s what I know. I’m looking forward to being competitive with some of the best and seasoned drivers out there. All this is new to me so a good finish would be really encouraging.” Watch live on FS1 on April 14 at 1:00 eastern...

Speedweeks Results

Speedweeks Results

Despite Majeski’s impressive runs at Speedweeks prior to the 2018 season, the team had a tough time getting in the rhythm this year. With one win under his belt, Ty ended the week with a broken oil box bracket that sent him into the wall in turn two during practice for that night’s 100 lap feature. This effectively ended his stint at Speedweeks at New Smyrna Speedway. With a week of ups and downs, the team left New Smyrna with a lot of lessons learned. “We need to come with a few more of our regular crew” States Majeski. “We had skilled people but we just needed more help. Running a race of this caliber with the stout competition that was here, we should have been on our A game and we just weren’t. The team we had at New Smyrna was great but it’s a lot of pressure for only 4 of us to handle.” Majeski’s next scheduled race is April 14 at Bristol Motor Speedway. It will be his 2018 Xfinity Debut racing for Roush Fenway in #TheProgram60 car sponsored by Ford Performance that he shares with Chase Briscoe and Austin Cindric. States Majeski “Our next scheduled race is Bristol but you never know if we will add a race here and there! Keep...
