Ty Majeski joins Chad Bryant Racing for limited ARCA schedule

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Chad Bryant Racing (CBR) announced today that Ford Performance driver Ty Majeski (@TyMajeski) will compete in a limited ARCA Menards Series schedule beginning with Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in May.

Majeski, a Midwest short track standout will compete in five of the remaining 18 ARCA races driving the team’s No. 22 Ford Fusion.

In addition to Charlotte, Majeski will also race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in June followed by Michigan International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway and the season-finale at Kansas Speedway in October.

“This is a great opportunity from Chad Bryant Racing,” offered Majeski. “They are certainly sticking their neck out for me and I appreciate it and I’m more than ready for Charlotte.”

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.

“We’re very excited to welcome Ty Majeski to Chad Bryant Racing,” said team principal Chad Bryant. “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 added that the team’s goals are set high, but they’ll have five chances to pull it off and he believes his stock car experience will be an asset to the program.

“Our goals are set pretty high and I’m excited to get going,” explained Majeski. “We try to plan on getting to Victory Lane. I think the equipment is capable of it and Paul is a great crew chief.

“We will have fives time to do it. I believe my previous ARCA experience and my time in the Xfinity Series last year will certainly be a benefit and I hope that we can put together the results that we’re proud of.”

 

Sponsorship for Majeski’s effort will be announced at a later date.

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.

Joe Graf Jr. Quote: “Obviously, the finish wasn’t what we were hoping for in our No. 77 EAT SLEEP RACE | GRIME BOSS Wipes Ford Fusion.

Chad Bryant Racing gets back to business at Five Flags Speedway

PENSACOLA, Fla. – After nearly a four-week break the ARCA Menards Series returns to action for Saturday night’s ARCA Pensacola 200 where Chad Bryant Racing (CBR) drivers Joe Graf Jr. and Corey Heim look for strong performances at Five Flags (Fla.) Speedway.

To prepare the team for the second race of the season, both drivers and former ARCA champion Grant Enfinger tested at the historic half-mile facility, where they dialed in their Ford Fusions hoping to give them an added boost prior to a full day of practice, qualifying and the race on March 9.

For Graf Jr., driver of the No. 77 EAT SLEEP RACE Ford Fusion, the race is an opportunity to get his sophomore season back on track after a plastic bag caused the engine to overheat during the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway last month, hindering the 20-year-old driver’s finishing position.

“I’m looking forward to Five Flags this weekend,” said Graf Jr. “It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me – but I’m eager to get back behind the wheel of my No. 77 Eat Sleep Race Ford Fusion and have an opportunity to get my second ARCA win.”

A rising star in stock cars, Graf Jr. says the test in Pensacola last weekend helped him get a footing for the track’s abrasive surface and a chance to get acquainted with his new teammate.

“The test went good for us,” Graf Jr. added. “Five Flags is a new venue for ARCA and that’s a great thing but for all of us, but it will be a very competitive race. We spent last week tweaking with the setup in both qualifying and race mode to make sure we were in a good spot to come back and unload.

“If we can find another tenth or two, we’ll be in great shape. Getting to the end of the race will be important for us as we want a shot to bring home the trophy.”

After joining CBR at Daytona, EAT SLEEP RACE, a racing lifestyle apparel company headquartered in New Jersey returns as the primary sponsor of Graf Jr.’s No. 77 Ford Fusion for the 200-lap race.

Since 2001, EAT SLEEP RACE has offered a full product line including accessories and apparel for men’s and ladies. As one of the pioneers of motorsports apparel, the brand has deep roots in the racing industry and was created to offer fresh designs for all racing enthusiasts.

“Super pumped to have EAT SLEEP RACE back on board this weekend at Pensacola,” offered Graf Jr. “We are working with them on several different projects and just launched a new campaign centered around our Daytona adversity and much more, it’s going to be a fun season.”

Heim will take the reins of the No. 22 Speedway Children’s Charities Ford Fusion and look to impress in his ARCA Racing Series debut under the direction of crew chief Paul Andrews.

“I’ve been counting down the days to get to Pensacola,” said Heim, a native of Marietta, Ga. “We had a really productive test with the guys last week and I’m looking forward to picking up where we left off this weekend.”

As for a goal for his ARCA debut on Saturday, Heim isn’t being overconfident – but believes his CBR team portrays the equipment and personnel to win.

“I’d like to think that I can win the race on Saturday night,” he said. “Joe (Graf Jr.) could too. Chad Bryant Racing always brings fast cars to the track. The guys have been great to work with and we’re proud to have Speedway Children Charities on the car this weekend. Just need to have a good showing to give us some momentum to our next race at Salem.”

Andrews who led the team in the test said he was impressed with Heim’s efforts.

“We unloaded fastest of the cars that were there,” said Andrews. “We spent the day working on race runs and set up options to get feedback and to get to know Corey’s driving style. At the end of the night, we made a mock qualifying run that had good speed and feel like we can go back this weekend and be faster.

“Most of all, Corey has experience at Five Flags Speedway in Snowball Derby competition and that will be an asset to all of us this weekend.”
