Majeski Was Hoping For More Despite Fifth at Texas

FORT WORTH, Texas – The right combination of staying out of trouble and consistency has given Ty Majeski his third consecutive top five finish in the 220 at Texas Motor Speedway. It’s his fourth top five of the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.

“I was happy with what we got on the restarts,” shared Majeski from the late race cautions. “We were restarting fifth and with the way lane choices went, we’d either be fifth or 12th, so we went with track position to sneak a good finish out of it. It’s part of it. These restarts are crazy, especially with a green-white-checkered finish. We’re going to keep battling.

“Three top fives in a row, so we’re going to keep rolling.”

But for Majeski, he is hoping for more. Despite the strong runs, the No. 66 Road Ranger Toyota Tundra has led only one lap. While they are running good, Majeski is hoping they can find that little adjustment to make their team great.

“I’m a little disappointed with a fifth,” Majeski continued. “We were expecting a little bit more. This has historically been a good track for Joe (Shear Jr., crew chief) and ThorSport Racing. Just missed a little bit tonight. We were probably an eighth to 11th place truck, just fought hard on the restarts and lane choices went our way, and we were able to come out with a fifth.

“Good day, just not a great day.”

ThorSport Racing looks to continue their strong efforts heading into the middle of the season. The schedule takes them to Charlotte Motor Speedway, then World Wide Technology Raceway. The team looks to continue their streak of having at least one truck finish in the top 10, which is closely approaching 50 in total.

“It’s just a testament to everybody back at the shop. Duke (Thorson, team owner) and Ronda have built an empire up in Sandusky, Ohio. We do our own bodies, our own chassis, completely self-sustainable. We’re proud of that and the results are showing. I’m excited for Charlotte. I ran for ThorSport there last year and ran seventh.”

For Majeski, he’s proud to be behind the wheel with a team like ThorSport Racing.

“I really like our chances (at Charlotte) and hopefully we can keep these runs rolling.”
