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

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...
