Majeski Rolls On at Stafford



The Sportsman Street Stock Series had an action filled race tonight at the Stafford Motor Speedway, as 27 drivers brought out their street stocks for the 75 lap event at the half-mile oval. Ty Majeski grabbed the quick time in qualifying with a time of 22.760, about a tenth of a second ahead of Justin Brooks in 2nd.

When the green flag flew, Majeski got the jump with the lead and began to pull away out front. Cody Thompson moved up into 2nd while Brooks dropped into 3rd, with James Poleske, Brian Tedeschi and Bill Martin following closely in tow. The field would settle in nicely at the beginning of the run as they knocked out a 15-lap run to start things off, and it didn’t take long for Majeski to catch the back end of the 27-car field. The first incident of the night came out as Tedeschi got spun down into the infield off the backstretch as the cars he was running with were all nose-to-tail and they got together.

As the race carried on, the top 5 remained about the same for much of the event. Points leader, Matt Rolfe, made his way into the top 5 during the second half of the race, while some other drivers like Clay Snider, Tyler Hudson, Stan Bragg and Adam Jordan had to work from deeper in the field to work their way up into the top 10. Hudson would have to do it twice after a mid-race incident while in the top 5 dropped him back in the field but he made repairs and recovered for a strong finish.

But back up front, Majeski would have his hands full on the restarts. The final one would come with just four laps to go, and Ty would jump out front while the rest of the field battled it out behind him. Thompson, Martin and Poleske would all file down to the bottom which left Rolfe stuck on the outside and he would fall back a couple of positions. With just two laps to go, Martin would make a move for the 2nd position and would get into the back of Thompson, but Thompson wasn’t able to save it and found his car facing the wrong way as the field went by.

Out in the lead though, Majeski had pulled away and he would lead all 75 laps en route to his first career SARA Street Stock victory, and his 5th overall win. With the victory, Ty has now won a race in all 4 active SARA divisions. Martin would end up in 2nd place, with Poleske in 3rd. Hudson finished off his recovery by working up to a 4th place finish, while Tedeschi also recovered and finished in the 5th spot. Rolfe would take home 6th, and he would hang onto his points lead by 34 points over Tedeschi.
