On the final night of racing at New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, Ty Majeski put in a flawless performance to take the victory in the 100-lap Super Late Model feature as well as the division championship.

 

Majeski set fast-time in qualifying and had great track position to start off the feature after drawing a two for the invert.  He quickly took the lead from Derek Thorn and never looked back.

 

The Seymour, Wisconsin driver was untouchable as he led by over a straightaway for much of the night.

 

“I was just riding around there on that long green flag run,” Majeski said on the FansChoice.TV broadcast.  “This thing was just flawless tonight.”

Majeski said that the key to scoring three victories during Speedweeks was mostly just having luck on his side.

 

“The invert kept us in the front a lot of time,” he said.  “That really help us at Speedweeks.  That was definitely the big key to our successes this week.”

 

Brad May, Stephen Nasse, Christian Eckes and Riley Herbst completed the top five on a night that saw a lot of equipment torn up in a Talladega-esque crash on a restart with 13 laps to go.

 

Dalton Armstrong, Josh Collins, Dave Garbo, Derek Kraus, Vinnie Miller, Tanner Gray and more were involved with almost all cars involved being unable to continue.

 

Majeski was out front on the restart, much like he was almost all week long.

 

“Speedweeks has a reputation of tearing some stuff up, and we were really fortunate that we had a car that qualified pretty well,” he said.

 

Harrison Burton appeared to be the only car that might have had a little something for Majeski, but he had to come down pit road under caution to pull a tear-off from his windshield.

 

After Burton was out of the picture, May moved into second to score his best finish of the week.  While it wasn’t a win, May was about as happy as one could be.

 

“It feels amazing,” May said.  “The cars we are running against are so great and they came down here with cars to run Speedweeks.  We had this car built to run the 2001 Speedweeks and we’ve been racing it off and on ever since.”
