Chad Bryant Racing (CBR) announced today that Ford Performance driver Ty Majeski (@TyMajeski) will drive the team’s No. 22 Ford Fusion in Friday afternoon’s General Tire 200 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.
Talladega is an 11th-hour addition for Majeski and the CBR team after the veteran ARCA Menards Series organization announced last month that Majeski, a Midwest short track standout would compete in five events this season.
In addition to Talladega, Majeski will now compete in six races total. Following Friday’s race, Majeski will return at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in May then race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway (June), Michigan International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway and wrap up his tenure with the season-finale at Kansas Speedway in October.
“I found out Monday that I would be making my ARCA debut at Talladega and I’m excited about that,” said Majeski who will make his 10th career start Friday. “Chad Bryant Racing has proven to have exceptional restrictor plate cars and I look forward to the opportunity to showcase that.“I also embrace the opportunity to work with my teammate Joe Graf Jr. (No. 77 EAT SLEEP RACE Ford) and hope that we can draft together and put ourselves in a position to battle it out for the win. That would be the best-case scenario this week.”
A native of Seymour, Wisc., Majeski has long been considered one of the stoutest stock car talents of the past decade with four ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Model championships and triumphs in prestigious events like the World Series of Asphalt, Florida Governor’s Cup, Oktoberfest 200 and the Rattler 250.
From the short track scene, Majeski ran a limited ARCA schedule from 2016 – 2017 before being elevated to a 12-race NASCAR Xfinity Series campaign in 2018. In nine ARCA starts, Majeski earned two top-five and seven top-10 finishes, including a career-best second place finish at Kansas Speedway in 2017 driving for Cunningham Motorsports, the predecessor of Chad Bryant Racing.
Veteran ARCA and former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship crew chief Paul Andrews will lead Majeski’s efforts.
“I’m very happy to have Ty driving for us at Talladega,” said team principal Chad Bryant. “With him driving at Talladega it provides a chance to jumpstart our relationship and get the mojo back moving between Ty and Paul (Andrews.)
“Ty came to Cunningham Motorsports in 2016 and got off to a fast start and did some amazing things in a short amount of time.
“Ty may be driving under a new team name, but a lot of the fundamentals from his time at Cunningham Motorsports are still in place today. I expect him and Paul (Andrews) to pick up where they left off and be an asset to our two-car program throughout the 2019 season.”
Majeski, 24, is sharing the No. 22 Ford Fusion ride with newcomer Corey Heim who will make his speedway debut at the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway on July 26 in the Pocono ARCA 150.
