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 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...
Majeski off to Rough Start at Speedweeks

Majeski off to Rough Start at Speedweeks

With 3 of 7 races under his belt, 4 time ARCA Midwest Tour Champion Ty Majeski sits just inside the top 10 in points. Because of contact with two competitors in two separate races, Majeski precariously finds himself out of contention for the championship. There has been much controversy surrounding the circumstances of his 11th, 9th and 7th place finishes. The first incident, during the first of 7 races, involved southern racer Jeff Choquette. Racing hard for position, There was contact between the 9 of Choquette and the 91 of Majeski. Choquette was quoted in saying, “He’s not someone you can just let by. Spotter said he was outside and I as trying to crowd him as much as I could to keep my line. I got the short end of the stick. Damage isn’t too bad. Mostly cosmetic but we can race tomorrow.” Majeski was subsequently sent to the back for his involvement. Majeski’s quote; “I got the outside on Jeff, and pinned him behind the lap car. I could tell he wanted to clear me. If I had a run, I was going to clear him over the next few corners. He just tried to get out and kept coming up and up and up and pretty soon I ran out of room and put him into the wall. I hate it for him but it’s the first night, it’s a long week and it’s unfortunate that we had a car get torn up.” In a separate incident during the 3rd super late model race, Ty was leading and a faster Harrison Burton was approaching. Burton caught...
