Who to Watch For:
While Ty Majeski is always fast, Casey Johnson will be back at the track this weekend as a driver, and knows how to get around Jefferson Speedway.
Ty Majeski has taken over the points lead, something he is familiar with. He leads Dan Fredrickson by 19 points going into race #3 of the season.
Jefferson Speedway is a 1/4 mile paved oval located near Cambridge, Wisconsin. The track features two distinct grooves; the inside for turns 1&2, and the outside for turns 3&4.
The race weather will be near perfect today, partly cloudy and a high of 75.
Next Series Race:
The next race for the ARCA Midwest Tour will take place June 10th at Marshfield Motor Speedway.
What Won the Race:
A caution with 57 to go gave Ty Majeski the opportunity to have a great restart and check out from the rest of the field.
|4||7s||Paul Shafer Jr||100|
|10||20||Jim Sauter Jr||99|
|17||54||Rich Schumann Jr||43|
|18||7||John DeAngelis Jr||43|
|21||45||Rich Bickle Jr||28|
Dalton Zehr had a fast car until a restart left in in the clutches of Ty Majeski, who once again had the car to beat. Majeski powered to the lead with 56 to go.
“We felt like after practice we didn’t really have the car to win the race, especially starting deep in the field. We made some changes, took a chance on it and we definitely hit on it.
Winning Crew Chief:
On the Move:
Paul Schafer Jr. used speed and patience to climb into the top-5 and finish fourth.
Andrew Morrissey had a fast car, but was caught up in a wreck 43 laps in and was unable to continue.
