Ty Majeski and Bubba Pollard Considered Best Short Track Racers of their Time…

When the ASA STARS National Tour returns to action on Father’s Day Weekend, two drivers who are widely considered to be the best in the business will square off at the half-mile Madison International Speedway and the Milwaukee Mile Speedway. But where do they rank on the list of the Greatest of All-Time pavement short track super-late model racers?

Seymore, WI racer Ty Majeski and Senoia, GA driver Bubba Pollard are both entered for the ASA STARS National Tour Wisconsin Doubleheader. The Holiday weekend “double” kicks off on Friday, June 14 with the Capital 200 at Madison International Speedway. The Father’s Day 100 is set for Sunday, June 16 at the Milwaukee Mile Speedway, and will mark the half-way point of the ASA STARS National Tour 2024 championship series.

Majeski and Pollard are considered “generational talents” by most in the industry. Each has remarkable career accomplishments, and they both started out the 2024 season “Red-Hot.”

Pollard won three straight super late model touring series races in January, February and March to kick off the 2024 season, including the ASA STARS National Tour season opening event at New Smyrna Speedway during Florida Speedweeks.

Pollard’s career accolades rival any other driver’s in short track racing. He’s won the Oxford 250, All American 400, Rattler 250, Slinger Nationals, and many other marquee races across the United States and into Canada. He won the Battle at Berlin 250 at Berlin Raceway last August; Speedfest 2024 at Cordelle, GA in January and yet another Rattler 250 in March.

Since 2004, he was won 160 races and has finished in the top-ten in an astonishing 70% of his nearly 600 recorded starts. The Georgia driver has two ASA STARS National Tour wins coming at North Wilkesboro Speedway in 2023, and the Clyde Hart Memorial 200 at New Smyrna this spring. He enters the Father’s Day Weekend doubleheader 3rd in ASA STARS National Tour Points.

Meanwhile, Majeski heads into the Badger-State doubleheader weekend on a roll in Wisconsin, having won the first three ASA Midwest Tour races – at Slinger, Madison International Speedway and Jefferson Speedway. He won three races with the ASA STARS National Tour in 2023 – Madison, Milwaukee, and Wisconsin International Raceway –on his way to winning ghe 2023 ASA STARS National Tour Championship. Additionally, he also won the Slinger Nationals and the ASA Midwest Tour Jim Sauter Classic last summer.

The Wisconsin driver’s accolades include a record five ASA Midwest Tour championships, two Snowball Derby wins (2020 and 2023), five Rattler 250 wins, three Florida Governor’s Cup wins, and victories in every major race in the state of Wisconsin. In total, he has won 130 races since 2011, not including weekly wins in his home state.

These two “Titans of Short Track Racing” are drawing comparisons to the best drivers in the history of pavement super-late model racing, bringing back memories of Dick Trickle, Larry Phillips and Gary Balough – short track racers who won hundreds and hundreds of races in their day. Others will compare Majeski and Pollard to racers like Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth and Rusty Wallace – drivers who won – and won a lot – on the short tracks before moving on to NASCAR.

The list of accomplished short track, pavement super-late model racers is long and distinguished. The argument for the G.O.A.T. may never be resolved, but here’s your chance to cast your vote.

The rules are simple. Vote one time, for one driver. Voting deadline is Saturday, June 15 at 5PM ET. The results will be release on Sunday, June 16 prior to the Father’s Day 100 at Milwaukee.
