Majeski On Track to Beat All-Time Win Record

“Jefferson Speedway is one of the three Wisconsin tracks I have not won at,” stated Ty Majeski prior to the green flag dropping at the 1/4 mile powerhouse race track. “Slinger, Golden Sands and Jefferson are the three tracks that I need to conquer. Hopefully we can dial it in and get it done for the feature.” Get it done he did. After qualifying with a track record breaking fast time, Ty was inverted to the outside of row 6. He didn’t stay there long as he made his way to the top spot after challenging the 119 of Dalton Zehr for several laps. When the checkered flag dropped, Ty was almost a full straightaway ahead of Zehr with the third place Casey Johnson not far behind. This makes 15 wins for Ty in the ARCA Midwest Tour. Dan Fredrickson currently holds the tours all time record for number of wins at 16. With 16 fast times, the 91 holds the all time record in that category. Ty is throwing his hat in the ring at Golden Sands Speedway on May 29 for the Dick Trickle Memorial race at Golden Sands Speedway. He is hoping to check another track off his list of winless tracks. Ty’s Next Race is at Golden Sands Speedway in plover Wisconsin for the dick Trickle Memorial race. Fan gates open at...

On May 7, Madison International Speedway was the site of the Joe Shear Classic. After qualifying third Ty began the 100 lap feature in the 8th position due to an invert. Before the halfway point, Ty made an impressive pass to take the lead. After a mandatory pit stop, he started 13th with 108 to go. The pit strategy played into the 91 iRacing Ford struggling to maintain track position and was running p10 with 47 to go. A caution came out and the team serviced the car with 43 to go. He was p5 with 10 to go and a single file restart. After digging deep, Ty came away with a hard fought finish for third when the checkered flag dropped. As Ty continues to have strong finishes, he confirms and builds his status as one of the top short track competitors nation wide.

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...

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.
