“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. July 11 Ty left for North Carolina to test live pit stops at Roush Fenway Racing he felt confident with the education that he took away from that session.

He was able to cross the finish line in the second spot. July 15 brought the long journey to Grundy, Illinois. The 100 lap feature at Grundy Co Speedway was one for the books for sure!

When the green flag dropped, He made his way to p1 by lap 13 and checked out. The car was unbelievably fast.

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 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.

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....
