NASCAR Next alumni Nicole Behar isn’t the only driver making their ARCA Racing Series debut this weekend.
Also in the field of the Montgomery Ward Father’s Day 200 at Madison International Speedway will be Roush Fenway Racing development driver and current NASCAR Next member, Ty Majeski.
Majeski, 21, was announced as the latest Roush development driver in May. He will drive the No. 17 Ford for Roulo Bros. Racing. They also fielded a car for Sprint Cup driver Chris Buescher when he was a Roush development driver.
Majeski, a native of Wisconsin, is already a winner at Madison. He won the May 1 ARCA Midwest Tour Joe Shear Classic at the half-mile track.
“We were able to test last week and I felt very comfortable in the car,” Majeski said in a press release. “The goal is to always be competitive and upfront, but I also know there is going to be a learning curve. I am excited to be making my first start.”
When Buescher competed for the Roulo brothers, he won the 10 races and claimed the 2012 ARCA title.
“Madison is a great place for us to be making our first start together,” said Gary Roulo in a press release. “Ty has had a lot of success here in late models, and as a team we won here in 2012 and finished second here in 2011 with Chris Buescher.”
