Majeski Starts Season Strong

Majeski Starts Season Strong

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. On May 13, the team raced the track they consider their “home track.” La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway never disappoints with exciting racing action. Ty qualified in the second position, started the fast dash fifth and finished in second. He stated “I feel like we have a pretty good piece tonight but there is some stout competition here.” He started the feature in the middle of the pack and began his journey to the front of the pack immediately. Ty finished the 25 lap feature taking home the win at the season opener at La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway. Ty was looking forward to the next event on his busy roster. On May 16 and 17, the Roush Fenway team along with Ty tested the Xfinity...
Majeski has Successful Run at Chicagoland

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...

“Hell Week” presents multiple races in multiple days

July 9, Ty raced at Lacrosse Fairgrounds Speedway in West Salem, WI. In true Ty fashion, he set fast time and won the 25 lap feature. This began the week and a half of non-stop traveling, testing, practicing and racing for Ty and his crew. July 10 was a practice race at Slinger to make certain the car that was in an accident at Rockford was ok to race. Ty qualified 7th and started 6th. He was racing in the 4th position when his car began overheating. Not willing to push it, Ty pulled off the track.

When the green flag dropped, He made his way to p1 by lap 13 and checked out. The car was unbelievably fast. He managed to pull away and lap a good number of cars when with 23 to go, He lost all power and had to be...

The Highs and Lows of LaX

Saturday, July 2nd, Ty participated in the TUNDRA Super Late Model Series race at his “home track” (because of the location of the shop that houses his multiple cars.) La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway has seen Ty tear it up several times already this season, breaking the track record and winning both events he entered. Ty started out strong in this event as usual, running top times in practices. He qualified with fast time and broke the qualifying record for the TUNDRA Series. Ty started in the 11th spot in the 50 lap feature. He was up to 7th with 40 to go when a caution flag flew. Filled with determination, Ty worked his way smoothly up to 6th. Around halfway through the feature, an ignition wire broke on his Treeo’s Johnny’s hobbies, Wehr’s machine, Frog Racing Chevy, effectively ending his night. Ty is looking foreword to racing at Lacrosse again on July 9 and then at Slinger Speedway on July 10.

Majeski All-Around Fastest at Gateway

Majeski All-Around Fastest at Gateway

Gateway Motorsports Park Photography 6-25-16: The track at Gateway Motorsports Park is 1.25 miles of speed. Ty Majeski proved he had what it takes to conquer his longest track to date. Ty took a quick lap in practice only to discover the car had a vibration, he quickly pitted and the crew diagnosed and made a repair. From that point on, Ty only got quicker and quicker as the day went on. He unofficially broke the track record his third lap of practice. Qualifying began a half hour after practice ended and Ty was to go out first. He set a blistering fast time of 33.267, beating the old track record of 33.987 set by Mike Garvey in 1997. Ty’s average speed on this lap was about 134 mph. After rolling a 3, the invert set him to a 10th starting spot but unfortunately a rain delay would hold the race off until much later. The NASCAR Camping world trucks would run their feature event due to tv time and the ARCA Midwest Tour event would have to wait. That time turned into the next day. The checkered flag dropped just after midnight on Sunday Morning. By lap 3 Ty was in second place and looking to pass for the lead. A yellow came out and re set the field. Ty passed for the top position and lead the rest of the race from lap 4 on. He stretched his lead to over 7 seconds over the 2nd place car. When the checkered flag dropped, Ty was the official winner of the Illinois Lottery 50 at Gateway Motorsports Park....
