Ty Majeski dominated on Sunday afternoon at Slinger Super Speedway, winning the Jerry Priesgen Memorial on opening day for the Wisconsin quarter-mile.

Majeski took the lead on lap 21 of the 100-lap race co-sanctioned by the ASA Midwest Tour and Slinger’s Super Late Model division. From there, the three-time Slinger Nationals winner dominated. When the checkered flag fell, Majeski crossed the line more than six seconds ahead of runner-up Max Kahler.

Even with the impressive performance and his impressive track record that also includes five ASA Midwest Tour championships and last year’s ASA STARS National Tour title, there can be moments of doubt over the course of a race weekend. Majeski couldn’t help but second-guess after qualifying ninth.

“We thought we had a great car yesterday. Then we unload today, race day, we fought the same thing at Slinger Nationals,” said Majeski. “You start second-guessing yourself, if you’re good enough.

“Man, this place is tough. It challenges us a lot, but we love coming here. It puts on a great race. I’m just so thankful to have the opportunity to come back here and race great Late Models, do it with some of my best friends in my life.”

For Kulwicki Driver Development Program finalist Max Kahler, a second-place effort was a huge boost of confidence at a track that has typically challenged him.

“I’m beyond happy with that,” said Kahler “We’ve struggled here in the past. To get a good run here is really rewarding for us.

“I’m happy to finally have a baseline setup here that can maybe work for the Nationals and put us into that show. I’m looking forward to the rest of the year.”

The 20-year-old admitted some of his experience may have shown on late restarts, as he struggled to keep up with Majeski.

“I think some of that inexperience showed on the restart. I got schooled there twice by the 91, but I was able to hang on to second. All in all, a good day.”

Another former Slinger Nationals winner and KDDP graduate, Luke Fenhaus, completed the podium.

“We just didn’t have enough,” said Fenhaus. “I’m thankful for my guys behind me. They gave me a good car, we just struggled. I knew right away the 91 killed us on center speed. I told them that 30 [laps] in.”
