Congrats Ty Majeski...wins back-to-back Rattler 250 titles

KINSTON, Ala. (March 20, 2017) -- Seymour, Wisconsin's Ty Majeski is already a two-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion. Now he's a two-time Rattler 250 champion.

Majeski won the 41st annual Rattler 250 Sunday afternoon at South Alabama Speedway, his second consecutive in the annual event.

Majeski got the jump on the final restart with 19 laps remaining after Harrison Burton spun his tires.

"Harrison spun his tires on that last restart and I was able to capitalize on it," said Majeski.

From there, Majeski pulled away from second-place finisher Burton.

"That last restart was tough. I went to go and didn't have my tires cleaned off enough," said Burton.

Majeski is taking a semester off from his studies at the University of Wisconsin to give more attention to his Roush Fenway Racing driver development program.

As is customary, Majeski had no issues with draping a live rattlesnake over his shoulders in Victory Lane.

"It's worth it. This race is one of the premier super late model races in the country," Majeski added. "The best late model teams in the country come here every year."

Rusty Wallace's son Steven Wallace finished third.
