Ty began driving electric go-karts at age 2, gas powered go-karts at age 3, and quarter midgets at age 4. He began racing quarter midgets in the USAC and QMA series at age 5.

Ty has won races and championships in the JR Honda, Light 160, and Light World Formula divisions. Ty has also won the JR Honda track championship and JR Honda Florida State championship. In his 2012 championship season Ty won 17 of his 20 starts, and swept both the heat race and feature race on 14 occasions - earning him the nickname 'The Broom'. Ty also reeled off 17 straight wins from the end of the 2011 season thru the first half of the 2012 season. Ty did not lose a race for more than 7-months.

In 2018 at the age of only 14, Ty won the Marion County Speedway 600 Outlaw Wing Sprint Track Championship as well as the speedways 'Hard Charger' award.
