VICTORY SNATCHED AWAY: Marks Nearly Pulls Off Win at BAPS Motor Speedway
Two day event at the Dirt Track at Charlotte will conclude 2020 for CJB
CARLISLE, PA. - October 26, 2020 - Brent Marks once again had victory within sight. Instead of a yellow flag keeping the Pennsylvania driver from victory, it was his engine.
Marks and the CJB team were in action at BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 24th. They finished second in their heat race and then started fifth in the feature. A valiant charge to the front pushed the #5 machine into the lead before the power plant expired with three circuits to go.
"Car was awesome all day long at BAPS," 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, , C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "I was hoping that motor would last three more laps. It is an unfortunate thing. I feel really bad for the team because we had that race won and lost a motor. We can not complain about the reliability Shaver Racing Engines has given us all season long. We are very happy with Ron’s program."
A two week break will give the team time to regroup before they travel south to Charlotte, N.C. to contest a two day event with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at the Dirt Track at Charlotte. The event, a make up for the canceled World Finals, will be known as the World of Outlaws Last Call.
"I’m excited to get back to Charlotte," said Marks. "It’ll be my first time there driving for CJB and Barry has always had a good car there so that excites me. We have good speed right now and I know we can go down there and race for wins."
