Bringing home his third ARCA Menards Series victory of the season from Chicagoland Speedway Ty Majeski is establishing his talent on the track. Even more impressive is that Majeski has visited victory lane three times in just five starts with all of the starts producing top-five finishes for Chad Bryant Racing.
Behind the wheel of the No. 22 Crestliner Ford Fusion, Majeski led practice early on Thursday afternoon on the 1.5-mile midwest tri-oval and qualified for the second spot on the front row for the start of the Bounty 150 on Thursday night. Majeski then went on to his third ARCA victory by dominating the race.
“I just wanted to hit my marks and keep the car out of trouble and bring it home,” said Majeski and the race. “This is as much about showcasing Chad Bryant Racing and stuff they build as it is showing the world what I can do and it would make me look horrible to throw away a car that dominant.
“Can’t thank my guys, Chad (Bryant), Paul (Andrews, crew chief) and Crestliner enough for the opportunity.”
Staying inside the top-three for the entire 100-lap event, Majeski and his team made minimal chassis adjustments allowing him to lead a race-high 72 laps. On older tires with a bit of a tight race car, Majeski faced all challenges from his competitors. On the lap 181 restart, Majeski was able to pull away for a 9.179-second gap to second place at the checkered flag.
“We’ve won all three races in a different way,” says Majeski about his three victories with Chad Bryant Racing. “We didn’t have the best car at Charlotte and beat them on a couple of late restarts. We got them in the pits at Pocono, we almost got them on fuel mileage at Michigan, and we wore them out with the best car here tonight.
Outside of his three wins at Charlotte, Pocono, and Chicagoland, Majeski has a fourth-place finish at Talladega and a second-place finish at Michigan. His sixth and last race with Chad Bryant Racing this season is scheduled for ARCA season finale at Kansas Speedway on October 18th.
The next ARCA Menards Series race is the Menards 250 at Elko Speedway on July 12th.
