“The night didn’t start off too well, but we fixed that in a hurry and got moving well in the ‘A,’” Brent Marks explained. “This just goes to show how strong of a mentality my team has. We never give up; constantly working to improve, even if we are halfway through a night of racing. Hopefully we can make this momentum work the rest of the month and score more top-ten finishes before returning home in mid-July.”
