Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / BRENT MARKS RACING – STOCKTON, CA – After a short weekend in Tulare, cut short due to Mother Nature, the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks will continue his 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series campaign with a pair of visits to the Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., on Friday and Saturday, March 16-17.
The FVP Platinum Battery Western Spring Shootout will be the main attraction, highlighted with back-to-back World of Outlaws programs.
Marks made his first-ever appearance at Stockton Dirt Track in 2017, recording a top-ten finish with the Greatest Show On Dirt after starting on the outside of row 11. The former Pennsylvania Posse representative charged ahead to finish ninth during the 30-lap program, a near-perfect recovery after not transferring through his respective heat race and forced to race the evening’s Last Chance Showdown.
“We’re excited to get back to Stockton Dirt Track, for sure,” Brent Marks, pilot of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19, said. “That was a big night for us when we were there last year. That makes us all the more motivated to get back there this weekend. This time we’ll work on achieving a better A-main starting position.”
During recent World of Outlaws competition, Brent Marks joined the Greatest Show On Dirt at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., on Friday, March 9. Unfortunately for Marks, his night ended during the Last Chance Showdown, unable to qualify for the evening’s main event.
Marks will enter the Stockton Dirt Track gates 18th in the current World of Outlaws standings, highlighting the season thus far with a pair of top-ten finishes, one resulting in a KSE Hard Charger Award.
