The ASA STARS National Tour points standings have been updated following the Gandrud Auto Group 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway, and Ty Majeski’s lead just keeps growing.
Following his win at WIR, the Wisconsin driver now has a 93-point lead in the standings over Redbud 400 winner Cole Butcher. With a maximum of 100 points available at every ASA STARS event, he now nearly has a full-race lead over the rest of the competitors.
Majeski has taken over the last three races at Milwaukee, Anderson, and WIR, flat-out dominating all three races. He led 75 of 100 laps at Milwaukee, 283 0f 400 at Anderson, and 206 of 250 at WIR, having led a grand total of 564 of a possible 750 laps in the last three races.
Additionally, he has also won five out of a possible six stages in said three races, his only blemish being a seventh in stage two at WIR. He has earned 143 stage points in ASA STARS races this season, most by a large margin. Majeski has also picked up bonus points for leading a lap, and leading the most laps, adding to the 93 point cushion.
The owner’s points looks similar to the driver’s points, with Gearheadz Motorsports holding a 93-point lead over the Wilson Motorsports No.28 team, who jumped Anthony Campi Racing in the owner’s standings after Johnny Sauter’s early exit Tuesday night.
