CONCORD, N.C. – Roush Fenway Racing has confirmed that Ty Majeski will return to the team’s No. 60 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR XFINITY Series during next weekend’s season-ending Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The race will mark the NASCAR Next driver’s third XFINITY Series start of the season.

Majeski’s previous two XFINITY starts came this season, both at Iowa Speedway. Majeski showed speed in both events, qualifying in the top-10 for both races.

While his plans for next season in the XFINITY Series are still to be determined, Majeski is looking forward to getting back to the track in NASCAR competition. He most recently drove a Lucas Jones-owned super late model to a second-place finish in the Pro All Stars Series South at Concord Speedway last weekend.

“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 legends and former Roush Fenway drivers Mark Martin, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards.

Majeski kicked off this year by earning his second-consecutive victory in the Rattler 250 super late model race at South Alabama Speedway. The win put Majeski in elite company, as just the second driver to win the Rattler back-to-back, and only the fourth driver to win more than one Rattler 250.

In 32 late model races this season, Majeski scored 20 wins and 29 podium finishes, while in five ARCA Racing Series starts, Majeski led 89 laps and finished inside the top seven in each race, including a career-best runner-up effort at Kansas Speedway.

Majeski, who started his racing career in go-karts at the age of nine, is the Snowball Derby track record holder at Five Flags and boasts many of late model racing’s biggest wins, including the 2015 and 2016 Governor’s Cup. He was also the 2016 super late model champion at the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.

Roush Fenway veteran Mike Kelley will serve as crew chief for Majeski’s run at Homestead-Miami.

Kelley helped guide Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to a pair of XFINITY Series championships in 2011 and 2012 and has 12 career wins as a crew chief.
