Ty Majeski will be very busy racing in the NASCAR Truck Series in 2020, competing full-time with Niece Motorsports. However, that will not prevent the Wisconsin racer from competing at some major Super Late Model events during the year.
During an interview on Speed51’s “The Bullring” Tuesday, Majeski laid out some of those plans, as well as other races he hopes to hit during the new year.
Unsurprisingly, Majeski has already circled several dates in his home state of Wisconsin, starting with the Joe Shear Classic on May 3.
“Right now, I think we’re for sure going to do the Joe Shear Classic at Madison in May. We’ll be able to run that one. It’s on a Sunday and we’re at Dover on Friday night. We’re going to go to the Slinger Nationals, the Dixieland 250, Oktoberfest at LaCrosse Fairgrounds for that big weekend.”
The Snowball Derby takes place after the NASCAR season is over, and it’s a race that has eluded Majeski many times over his career. He is already making plans to capture the biggest Super Late Model race of the year.
“Obviously, the Snowball Derby,” said Majeski. “We need to get one of those. I felt like we should have had at least two of those for sure, and obviously that one has been biting us. I want to go back there and conquer that place and that big race.
Majeski also hopes to check off some new destinations this year. He spoke of one event in particular where he has not previously raced and is scheduled on an off weekend for the Truck Series in 2020.
“One I have circled on my schedule that I really want to try to make it up to is the Oxford 250,” said Majeski. “That race has been on my bucket list for a lot of years now. I really want to get out to that race.”
He acknowledged that there will be some challenges preparing for a new track and some differences between the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) rules and those utilized in the Midwest, but it’s a task he and his team hope to accomplish and tackle this year.
“The rules package is a little bit different than the Midwest, so we’re going to do what we can to try and make it out there for that and put a car together that will be competitive at that type of track and in that kind of race.”
During the interview on “The Bullring,” Majeski also discussed his 100th career win in the Orange Blossom 100 at New Smyrna Speedway, his first Truck Series appearance at Daytona International Speedway and more. To listen to the entire segment in podcast form, click here.
