Ty Majeski dominates in season opener Slinger Super Late Model

Ty Majeski dominated Sunday afternoon at Slinger Super Speedway, winning the Jerry Priesgen Memorial on the opening day of the Wisconsin quarter-mile.

Majeski took the lead on lap 21 of the 100-lap race, co-sanctioned by the ASA Midwest Tour and Slinger’s Super Late Model division. From there, the three-time Slinger Nationals winner dominated. When the checkered flag fell, Majeski crossed the line more than six seconds ahead of number two Max Kahler.

Even with the impressive achievements and his impressive track record, which includes five ASA Midwest Tour championships and last year’s ASA STARS National Tour title, there can be moments of doubt during a race weekend. Majeski couldn’t help but have doubts after qualifying ninth.

“Yesterday we thought we had a great car. Then we solve today, race day, the same thing we fought at Slinger Nationals,” said Majeski. “You start to doubt yourself whether you are good enough.

“Man, this place is tough. It challenges us enormously, but we enjoy coming here. It makes for a great race. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to come back here and race great Late Models, and do it with some of my best friends in my life.
