In 2017, Ty Majeski will make his NASCAR XFINITY Series debut at Iowa Speedway with Roush Fenway Racing, behind the wheel of the iconic No. 60 Ford Mustang.
Majeski was named to the 2016-17 and 2017-18 NASCAR Next Classes, which is a NASCAR program identifying up-and-coming stars from across the United States and Canada.
Since joining Roush Fenway as a development driver, the Wisconsin-native has not slowed down. Majeski, a senior in mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, relocated to North Carolina where he works closely with Roush Fenway’s aerodynamic and shock departments.
Majeski kicked off 2017 with a bang, earning his second-consecutive victory in the Rattler 250 Super Late Model race at South Alabama Speedway. The win put Majeski in elite company, as just the second driver to win the Rattler back-to-back, and only the fourth driver to win more than one Rattler 250.
Majeski, who started his racing career in go-karts at the age of nine, is the Snowball Derby track record holder at Five Flags. In addition, Majeski also boasts many of late model racing’s biggest wins, including the 2015 and 2016 Governor’s Cup. He was also the 2016 Super Late Model Champion at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.
In his rookie season in the ARCA Midwest Tour, Majeski not only captured Rookie of the Year honors, but earned the championship on the strength of two wins. In his sophomore year, Majeski followed that up with five more wins and another championship. The young driver earned his third-consecutive championship in the series in 2016, earning six wins in just 10 races.
In 2015, Majeski was one of seven drivers to compete in the first-ever class of the Kulwicki Driver Development program (KDDP). Majeski not only excelled during his on-track performances – earning the maximum number of points in the competition – but also showed his dedication to the KDDP in how he represented the program off-track. In establishing his own driver development program for young go-kart drivers, Majeski highlighted the organization’s mission to serve young talent. Majeski’s outstanding performance in the KDDP led him to being crowned the inaugural Kulwicki Cup Champion for 2015.
In his free time, Majeski enjoys snowmobiling, watersports and iRacing. Majeski is the No. 1 ranked iRacer in the world, with over 830 wins in 1,112 starts.
