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....
