CONCORD, N.C. – Three-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion and Roush Fenway Racing developmental driver Ty Majeski will make his NASCAR XFINITY Series debut on June 24 at Iowa Speedway.
iRacing.com, the world’s premier online racing game/simulation, will serve as the primary partner on Majeski’s Ford for the race.
“I’m really excited to make my NASCAR XFINITY Series debut with Roush Fenway at Iowa,” said Majeski. “From the first time you sit in a race car, your dream is to compete in NASCAR and this is the next big step in what we have been working towards.
“It’s also really cool to have iRacing on board,” said Majeski. “I use it as a tool to keep my skills sharp and they have been a great partner, supporting me at many levels throughout my career.”
“We noticed Ty right away on iRacing with his winning so many races,” said Tony Gardner, president of iRacing.com. “Then after sponsoring his late model for the last three years, to sponsor his debut race in the XFINITY Series and be a part of his continued growth and development, is pretty special for us.”
Majeski, a senior in mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, recently moved to Concord, N.C., where he will work closely with Roush Fenway’s aerodynamic and shock departments. The move will allow the young driver to build on his educational background in engineering and the practical experience gained through racing late model cars across the country.
“I’m just trying to dig in and learn something new each day,” added Majeski. “Racing is an extremely technical sport and being able to relay the proper information from the car to the crew chief is critical. The more I can talk like an engineer, the better the adjustments will be in the car.”
