Roush Fenway Racing has added another talented hotshoe to its driver development roster with the signing of Kulwicki Development Driver Program (KDDP) racer and two-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion Ty Majeski.
Majeski, 21, from Seymour, Wisconsin, has been the most talked about driver in Super Late Model racing in recent months after winning the World Series of Asphalt championship at New Smyrna Speedway in Florida. He backed that up with a victory in the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway and several other victories already this season.
Roush Fenway Racing made the announcement that Ty Majeski was joining the team on Monday morning, noting that he will race in select events in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards for Roulo Bros. Racing in 2016.
“We are truly excited about having Ty on board,” Roush Fenway President Steve Newmark said in a team press release. “He is an exceptional young man that has excelled on and off the track, as evidenced by his considerable racing accomplishments, as well as his career in the class room as an engineering student. We feel that there is a very high ceiling for what Ty can accomplish and we look forward to watching him progress in his career and playing a major role in that development.”
Majeski, already an eight-time winner this season, is excited about the opportunity to make the next step in his racing career.
“I am really excited to get this next step started,” Majeski said. “It’s an honor to be associated with one of NASCAR’s most successful owners, Jack Roush. I would like to thank everyone at Roush Fenway and Roulo Bros. for the opportunity.
“Gary Roulo and I started talking at the beginning of the 2015 season,” added Majeski. “And now we have been able to put this program together and I am very much looking forward to working with both Roush Fenway and the Roulo Bros. this season.”
The Roulo Bros. team is the same team Chris Buescher raced for in the ARCA Racing Series where he scored 10 career wins and won the 2012 series championship.
“After watching Ty for the past few years in his late model program, I really like what he does in and out of the race car,” Roulo Bros. owner Gary Roulo said in a Roush Fenway Racing press release. “I love his intensity. His late model program is a hard act to follow. Our focus is to not only win races in the ARCA Series, but to effectively prepare drivers to be successful at the highest levels of NASCAR.”
Majeski’s stock has been rising in just the past few months alone. After scoring 19 wins in 2015 and winning the ARCA Midwest Tour championship, Majeski went on to win the pole for the Snowball Derby and has been off to a hot start in 2016. His recent success earned him the number one status in Speed51.com’s “Short Track Draft” and earned him the Kulwicki Driver Development Program championship.
