TOLEDO, Ohio – official release — ARCA photo — One slot in the 2014 Road to Daytona sweepstakes has been locked up. A second will be decided this coming weekend.

Ty Majeski had already clinched the ARCA Midwest Tour Rookie of the Year championship heading into Sunday’s Oktoberfest at LaCrosse Speedway in Wisconsin. Although a crash ended his night early, he still was able to hold off Nathan Haseleu in the final point standings to become the first-ever driver in the ARCA Midwest Tour history to win both the championship and rookie of the year in the same season.

“The first two races of the season weren’t too good but from then on we went up hill. We never had any breathing room though. The points were always tight,” Majeski said following the race. “… It’s because of all the hard work by everyone. It feels really good to bring it home for them.”

Majeski, 20, finished 18 points ahead of Haseleu in the final Midwest Tour standings.

As the winner of the ARCA Midwest Tour championship, Majeski is in line to take part in the open ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards test at Daytona International Speedway in December. He will get behind the wheel of an already-prepared ARCA car and make laps around the 2.5-mile, historic track.

The second slot in the Road to Daytona program will go to the winner of the ARCA/CRA Super Series. The final race of the 2014 season is Sunday with the Winchester 400.

The 2013 ARCA/CRA champ, Travis Braden, leads Ross Kenseth by 25 points entering the Winchester event.

Braden can all but clinch the title by finishing seventh or better in the race, or 13th or better if neither driver wins qualifying points.
