CONCORD, N.C. – Ty Majeski is set to return to the NASCAR XFINITY Series in next weekend’s season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, once again piloting the No. 60 Ford Mustang.
The start marks Majeski’s third XFINITY Series start of the season.
Majeski’s previous two XFINITY Series starts came this season, both at Iowa Speedway. Majeski showed speed in both events, qualifying in the top-10 for both races. While Majeski’s plans for next year in the XFINITY SEries are still to be determined, the young driver is looking forward to getting back to the track.
“I’m excited to head to Homestead,” said Majeski. “I’ve really enjoyed racing in the XFINITY Series this season, and am happy that I get another shot at a strong finish to close out the season. I know that we will have a strong Ford, and will hopefully be able to contend for a win to go into the offseason on a high note.”
Majeski, who recently captured his fourth consecutive ARCA Midwest Tour championship, will again drive the No. 60, a car entry that holds the record for NASCAR XFINITY Series wins with 93. The car has been driven to victory lane on numerous occasions by NASCAR and former Roush Fenway drivers Mark Martin, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards.
In 32 late model races this year Majeski has scored an impressive 20 wins and 29 top-three finishes. In addition, this season Majeski captured the ARCA Midwest Tour championship – the fourth season in a row that Majeski has managed to do so – on the strength of six wins. In five ARCA Racing Series starts this year Majeski has led 89 laps and finished inside the top-seven in each event, including a career high second-place finish at Kansas Speedway.
Roush Fenway Racing veteran Mike Kelley will serve as crew chief on the car.
