Brent Marks hard charges to a top-ten during opening weekend with World of Outlaws
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
MYERSTOWN, Pa. (February 12, 2018) – Kicking-off his second, full season on the road with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks joined the Greatest Show On Dirt at Volusia (Fla.) Speedway Park for the 47th Annual DIRTcar Nationals on February 9-11.
During three nights of competition, Marks accumulated one top-ten finish, hard charging 15 positions from the inside of row 13 to finish tenth, officially. The other two nights of competition resulted in a 14th place finish and an unfortunate DNF; the result of a hard crash during Sunday night’s Last Chance Showdown. Marks walked away unharmed.
Before beginning his second World of Outlaws season, Marks joined the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 at Volusia Speedway Park, also during the 47th running of the DIRTcar Nationals. In two All Star starts, Marks finished eighth and 15th.
“Not the ideal way to start the season, but we’ll take these results and move forward,” Brent Marks said, who pilots the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19. “We showed everyone our ability to pass cars on several occasions last year, so it’s nice to back that up this year and get a hard charge during our first weekend out. All we need to do now is capitalize and earn some starting positions closer to the front. We have a long season ahead of us. We’ll use the DIRTcar Nationals as a shake-down weekend and move forward.”
Brent Marks will continue his sophomore season with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series with a pair of events in Texas. The Myerstown, Pa., native will invade the Cotton Bowl Speedway near Paige, Texas, on Friday, February 23, followed by a stop at the LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, on Saturday, February 24.
