Majeski Earns the Win at the Icebreaker

4-9-17 Dells Raceway Park was the site of the Icebreaker 100 on Sunday, April 9. Ty selected “Slender Ella” his chartreuse colored 91 Ford for this event. Practice presented a few issues that needed to be remedied prior to the start of the big show. Two spindles broke on the car on two separate occasions. Not to be deterred, Toby Nuttleman and Chris and Craig Johnson were able to dial the car in as practice wore on. Ty ended up qualifying in the second position. He started the even heat 8th and finished 6th putting him in the 12th position at the start of the race. Ty worked his way through the field and passed for the top position around lap 50 and held that spot through several cautions and restarts. A well-earned win came when the checkered flag dropped. “We had a long so-called off season racing down south and to come back here to the midwest and to be able to kick off the season with a win felt pretty special. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to be at the shop to help these guys out since I relocated to North Carolina. I’ve been working hard at Roush Fenway so for these guys to work so hard and put this car together and for us to run the way we did is pretty cool. It felt good to get behind the wheel of the 91 iRacing, Ted Mannstedt and Son Steel, LeJeune Bolt, Ken’s Sport, Black Diamond, Lefthander Chassis, Whers Machine, PFC Brakes, Black Diamond McGunegill powered Ford.” Ty goes on to say “I’ll be back and...

Majeski has Successful Run at Chicagoland

September 15, 2016 Chicagoland Speedway was the site of Ty’s third start in The Roulo Brothers #17 Potawatomi sponsored Ford Fusion. Despite using a steel body to the rest of fields composite body style, Ty was a contender throughout the day. His first laps in practice were learning the line around the race track. With the guidance of his spotter, Ty adapted quickly and shifted his sights to gaining speed. He ended practice with an overall time that was 6th quickest. He then backed up his time with a 6th place qualifying run. Starting outside 3rd row, Ty got shuffled back to 9th. On lap 2, a side window popped out of another car and hit the hood of the 17 car putting a deep scuff on the drivers side windshield. Despite the hood damage, Ty still had a good piece. During cautions, the pit crew did a great job of getting Ty back on the track, gaining positions on pit road. After three altercations with other cars, Ty, without a doubt, proved his driving skills by saving the car from wrecking three times. When the checkered flag dropped, Ty was in the 8th spot, a great finish for his third start in an ARCA car and his first start on a mile and half...
