Seymour, Wisconsin (Monday, April 20, 2015): As the 2015 racing season reaches wide open mode, 2014 ARCA Midwest Tour Champion and Rookie of the Year, Ty Majeski is ready to show the racing world that his accomplishments and accolades from a year ago are warranted. Insiders from around the motorsports industry have also taken notice of the talented 20-year-old rising star and that has resulted in a major sponsor for the Ty Majeski Racing Team for the remainder of the 2015 campaign: iRacing.com.
iRacing is a simulated racing program played online with real competitors. Many of the top NASCAR drivers in all three major touring series’ participate in simulated racing. Majeski has had many networking opportunities through iRacing and has been iRacing for five years. He was the first and only simulated driver to reach 10,000 iRating points, which is a skill based rating system in iRacing.com. It is a very impressive accomplishment.
“I can’t prove it but I firmly believe that iRacing has made me a better driver in real life races. I encourage anyone that wants to sharpen their real life skills to participate in iRacing.” Stated the Seymour, Wisconsin standout after finalizing the sponsorship deal. “I am so proud to have iRacing as my primary sponsor. I will do my best to continue to race hard and get that car in victory lane as much as possible this season.” He added.
“Although iRacing does not traditionally sponsor individuals, I feel strongly that Ty is a wise investment. We were very happy with his performance last season and that prompted us to agree to sponsor him at Speedweeks in Florida.” Added Tony Gardner of iRacing.com.

“Ty has dominated and been the number one performer in late model short track racing while participating in iRacing. He not only takes wins and championships but he also coaches other drivers and helps them as much as he can. Ty is looked upon as a leader and mentor in the simulated racing world. But what strikes us most is he transfers the skills to real life. He didn’t disappoint at Speedweeks. We were proud to be on his hood in victory lane.” Gardner remarked.
So far in 2015, Majeski has already raced in a slew of events throughout the country His last race, the Ice Breaker 100 at Dells Raceway Park (WI) on April 19th was the 10th race of the 2015 season for the 20-year-old. He came away with a fourth place showing in his first event of the season in his home state of Wisconsin. The next event on the 2015 is on Sunday, May 3rd at Madison International Speedway (WI) in the running of the first ARCA Midwest Tour race, the Joe Shear Classic 100.
