Brent Marks heads to Arizona after positive performance at Bakersfield Speedway
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (March 26, 2018) – After spending nearly a month in the Golden State with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, the Myerstown Missile Brent Marks will finally be able to make the trek back east, leaving California behind with a 14th place finish in his rearview mirror while in competition at Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on Saturday, March 24.
Marks, who earned his main event starting position after finishing fourth during his respective heat race, battled within the top-15 during most of the 35-lap program. The second-year traveler with the Greatest Show On Dirt climbed as high as eighth in the running order before crossing under the final checkers in the 14th spot. Marks started the main event on the inside of row eight.
“I think we were better than what the text results read,” Marks said, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/A. Murray Family Investments/No. 19. “That track was a lot of fun; slick across the bottom and the middle with a curb on top. On a small, tight bullring that like, you can really make a lot of headway, or lose positions in a hurry, especially with double-file restarts. Regardless, I’m proud of my team. That was our first visit to Bakersfield Speedway. I’m already excited to go back.”
Brent Marks will enjoy Easter weekend off before returning to World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competition on Saturday, April 7, at the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Arizona. The Myerstown, Pa., native finished 19th during his Arizona Speedway appearance in 2017. Currently 15th in the World of Outlaws championship standings, Marks will enter the Arizona Desert Shootout with a pair of top-ten finishes to his credit.
