Majeski Conquers Concord for Street Stock Win



The Concord Speedway was the host of tonight’s Sportsman Street Stock Series’ 75-lap race. The track’s odd configuration would provide plenty of action throughout the race, as 19 drivers brought their cars out to take on the half-mile triangular track. The night would get started with time trial qualifying and Ty Majeski would pick up the pole ahead of second place car, Bill Martin. Both of those drivers would look to recover after ending up on their roofs at the end of last night’s Legends race at NHMS.

The first run of the night would get started with Majeski jumping out to a strong lead, as he pulled out to about 2 seconds over Martin, who was looking to hold off Brian Tedeschi in 3rd. Behind them the next four cars would all run nose-to-tail, with Kevin Myers, Adam Jordan, Matt Rolfe, and James Poleske all looking to battle it out to get up into the top 5. On the first restart of the night on lap 16, some drivers in the field would notice that the usual inside lane wasn’t necessarily the best place to be on restarts, as a lot of ground could be made up in the outside groove.

Majeski would once again jump out to the lead, but behind him positions would begin to shuffle after each restart. Poleske would work his way up into the top 3 after Tedeschi and Myers would get together near the front of the field. Coming from the back of the field, Justin Brooks and Cody Thompson would also make their way up into the top 5 as the run went on, and by lap 45 they had both moved up in the top 3. A couple of front runners in the points would get together after lap 55 as a large group of cars were bumping and banging for spots within the top 10 as they raced each other hard. Jordan had been running in the top 5 all night long but would get shuffled back into that pack, and he and Matt Rolfe would get together sending both of them around. Jordan would recover for a 9th place finish, while Rolfe didn’t have as much luck finishing 16th. This would leave the door open for Tedeschi to gain some points and close the gap for the points lead.

Back up front though, the final restart would happen with 13 laps to go, this time with Majeski having to hold off Brooks and Thompson at the front of the field. Martin and Tedeschi would battle right behind them, hoping one of the leaders would make a mistake. Majeski was able to get away, while Thompson moved past Brooks up into the 2nd spot after the restart.

The caution would fly for the 6th and final time on lap 71, which was late enough to end the race under the yellow and checkered flags. Majeski would lead every lap on the night and came around to pick up his 2nd straight win in the series, and his 6th overall win of the Summer Season. Thompson would hang onto 2nd with Brooks right behind him in 3rd. Martin would finish off his strong run with a 4th, and Tedeschi would end up in 5th. Despite the 16th place finish for Rolfe, he hangs onto a 12 point lead over Tedeschi, who would make up some valuable points with his top 5.
