BEDFORD, Mass. – iRacing.com, the world’s leading online motorsports simulation service, is joining forces with Ty Majeski to sponsor the 2014 ARCA Midwest Tour champion and Rookie of the Year during the 2015 season.
A mechanical engineering student at the University of Wisconsin, the 20 year old Majeski is one of stock car racing’s rising stars and, with more than 735 wins to his credit on iRacing’s service, is already acknowledged as one of the world’s top sim racers.
iRacing.com has more than 60,000 members worldwide including scores of professional race drivers in IndyCar, sports car racing and all three major NASCAR touring series who participate in “sim racing” for fun and to sharpen their skills.
“I firmly believe that iRacing has made me a better driver in real life races,” said Majeski, the first and only sim racer to reach 10,000 iRating points on iRacing.com’s skill-based rating system. “I encourage anyone who wants to sharpen their real life skills to participate in iRacing.
“I am so proud to have iRacing as my primary sponsor. I will do my best to continue to race hard and get that car in victory lane as much as possible this season.”
“Although iRacing does not traditionally sponsor individuals, I feel strongly that Ty is a wise investment. We were very happy with his performance last season and that prompted us to agree to sponsor him at Speedweeks in Florida,” added Tony Gardner, President of iRacing.com.
“Ty has dominated and been the number one performer in late model short track racing while participating in iRacing,” Gardner continued. “He not only takes wins and championships, he also coaches other drivers and helps them as much as he can. Ty is looked upon as a leader and mentor in the simulated racing world. But what strikes us most is he transfers the skills to real life. He didn’t disappoint at Speedweeks. We were proud to be on his hood in victory lane.”
