DAYTONA BEACH, Fla — Ty Majeski’s first career NASCAR Truck Series start at the Daytona International Speedway was unfortunately short lived. Majeski, was involved in a frightening wreck in Lap 15 of the 100 lap season opener on Friday night which left his No. 45 Chevrolet spinning upside down and coming to a rest on the apron of Turn 1.
The wreck was sparked when Todd Gilliland was bump drafting the No. 02 Chevrolet that was being driven by rookie Tate Fogleman too hard in the tri-oval. That’s not the place to be drafting like that.
Fogleman, lost control of his Truck and run up the banking exiting the tri-oval and got into Austin Wayne Self’s No. 22 Chevrolet as a result. That contract got Self out of control as he spun ahead and hit Majeski’s right rear side panel and sent him into the wall and upside down.
He took a wild ride and would luckily climb out of his mangled truck under his own power when they finally were able to flip it back right side up. Majeski, was treated and released shortly after from the infield care center.
Brett Moffitt, Ross Chastain, Zane Smith and Tanner Gray were also collected in the crash too and all escaped major damage.
