"We had a fast car both nights," 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. "I felt really comfortable. We got behind early Friday and didn't catch the breaks we needed with such a fast race track but Saturday rolled around and we were determined. Everything went smooth and we raced our hearts out to try and win that race. I'm so proud of this team."
Marks and the #5 team will revisit Missouri for a weekend double header at Lake Ozark Speedway near Eldon, Mo. on Friday, May 29th and Saturday, May 30th. The team will look to build upon their strong run at I-55 Raceway.
"I'm excited to build off the momentum and continue into this weekend at Lake Ozark, which is a cool race track that I am excited to get back to," said Marks. "I have all the confidence in the world with this CJB Motorsports team and I hope to be competing for a win or two again this weekend."
