Charlotte Motor Speedway will be the fourth of 12 XFINITY Series races for Ty Majeski in the No. 60 Ford Mustang for 2018.

Majeski on Charlotte: "I am very excited to be racing at Charlotte for the first time. It is in everyone’s back yard and everyone wants to win. It’s one of the toughest 1.5-mile tracks on the schedule, so it was big for me to have been able to test there. We felt like the test went pretty well. There were some positives taken away from it for sure, but we have some ideas to be even better this race weekend." Recapping Dover: In his first ever start at Dover, Majeski qualified ninth and led laps at the "Monster Mile" before a mechanical issue sent him to the garage for repairs.
