We’re looking to continue to build on what Ross and the team accomplished this year. We expect to be contending for wins and ultimately the championship.”
“Last season was really a dream come true for me and this team,” said Niece in the press release. “No one expected us to be contending for a championship in Homestead – but there we were. We’re confident that we can do the same next season. Ty is clearly extremely talented – he’s won in everything he’s driven. I’m excited to have him join the team full time. We’re looking forward to great things in 2020.”
Majeski was relegated to running six ARCA Menards Series events lats season, winning three times. He drove part-time for Roush Fenway Racing in the Xfinity Series in 2018.
