CARLISLE, PA. - July 14, 2020 - Another weekend, another strong set of finishes for the CJB team as they get ready for a big money weekend in their home state.
On July 9th, Muskingum Country Raceway near Dresden, Ohio was the track that Brent Marks and the CJB Motorsports team competed at following the conclusion of Pennslvania Sprint Speedweek. The team timed in 5th, won their heat race , finished 3rd in the dash and 6th in the feature.
The following night, the team returned to Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg, Pa. to contest the paperclip shaped half mile. The team finished 5th in their heat race and 5th in the feature. A short trip to Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway the following night yielded a 3rd place finish in the feature and gave the team a pair of top-5's for the weekend.

"I felt pretty good all last weekend," said Marks, pilot of the #5 M&M Painting and Construction, BAPS Paints, Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel, Alkaline 88 Water, R.E. Pierson Construction Co., Wolfrun Landscapes, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "We had speed every night, was in contention at the All Star race in Muskingum, which is a track I've never been to. I felt like we had a car that carried a ton of speed at the Grove, as well at Port Royal. We rolled around all of those tracks really well. The team is trying to maintain a World of Outlaw type pace at events that are not World of Outlaw races and I think we have been accomplishing that."
The team will get to race near the Carlisle, Pa. shop this weekend as events at Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway make up a three day race stretch. On Friday, July 17th, the team competed with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove for the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial. The following two nights will be contested at Port Royal Speedway in the form of the Bob Weikert Memorial. With winners shares paying $25,000 across all three nights, Marks and the team are ready for battle.
"I look forward to this weekends All Star races at the Grove and Port Royal," said Marks. "I want to win the Weikert race! It’s the only prestigious race at Port I have not won yet and we have a good shot at it! There will be a lot of good competition this weekend which is always great, so I’m excited to get after it!"
