Ty Majeski joins forces with Cunningham/Roush Fenway Racing
Cunningham Motorsports will partner with Roush Fenway Racing to field cars for NASCAR Next driver Ty Majeski.
Majeski, a 22-year-old RFR development driver will pilot the No. 99 Ford Fusion for Cunningham Motorsports in five ARCA races this season.
He’ll make his debut at Pocono Raceway on June 9.
“I’m very excited for the opportunity to run some races with Cunningham this year,” Majeski said. “They have a successful history in developing drivers and I’m proud to be a part of it.
“It will be great for me to run some of the intermediate tracks to prepare the best I can for my Xfinity starts this year and I can’t thank Briggs Cunningham, Kerry Scherer, Paul Andrews, Chad Bryant and all the guys at Cunningham enough for this opportunity.”
The Seymour, Wisc. native, who is studying Mechanical Engineering at University of Wisconsin, Madison, made his ARCA debut last June at Madison International Speedway. In his first of four ARCA starts in 2016, he finished fourth at the half-mile track. Majeski will also race for Cunningham at Michigan International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and Kansas Speedway this season.
“Cunningham is truly excited to help continue the development of Ty as a driver and have him race with us at a few events this year,” said Cunningham co-owner Kerry Scherer. “He’s a young driver and a great talent that is on the right path for a successful future in NASCAR.
“It’ll be fun to watch him later this season and see what he can do in a Cunningham car.”
Majeski came up through the ARCA Late Model ranks, winning the Midwest Tour championship from 2014-2016.
“Ty has shown a tremendous amount of potential in his racing career,” said Roush Fenway Racing NASCAR Xfinity Series Team Manager Eric Peterson. “We are very excited to partner with Cunningham Motorsports this season to help with Ty’s development at select ARCA races.
"This is a great opportunity for him to get more experience on intermediate tracks and we are looking forward to his first race at Pocono in June.”
