Majeski Wins Winter Showdown

Majeski Wins Winter Showdown

February 2, 2019 was the date of the first winter thaw for Majeski. He heated up the Kern County Raceway at the 4th annual winter showdown. The weather played a big role during the event. With rain on and off throughout the day and winds gusting, it was uncertain if they would be able get the 300 lap,$ 30,000.00 to win race in. As it stood, Qualifying was already rained out which bumped the purse up another $2,500.00. The stakes were high and the teams were feeling the pressure. The Modified race began and was quickly rained upon. They called it with 45 laps of 75 in in an attempt to still get the Winter Showdown race in. The green flag dropped for the supers with Majeski starting in the 4th position. Over the radio, he stated he lacked straightaway speed. He was able to climb up to the 2nd position and have an impressive battle with the top three when the controlled caution came out. Ty stated they made an adjustment during the caution that helped a lot. Starting on the inside in p2, a massive chaotic wreck involving at least 17 cars happened when the p1 car hesitated on the restart. As this was being cleaned up, the darkness was threatening to end the race as the track had lost power in the storm. At this point all of the remaining drivers were driving each lap as if it were the last, not knowing when they would call the race. Once the race hit halfway, it could be called at any time. As Majeski was pulling away...

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...

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...
