Brent Marks Unchallenged For Tommy Classic All Star Sprint Win Friday At Williams Grove

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS – MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brent Marks and Murray-Marks Motorsports made it look easy on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, not only leading every lap of the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic for a $6,000 payday, but securing his first Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2022 season in the process, the fifth of his open wheel career and a first at famed half mile.

Relatively uncontested during the 30-lap program, Marks’ only real challenges were in the form of an early segment of heavy lapped traffic, as well as a trio of single-file restarts, surviving all of the above while keeping well-known speedster and National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, Lance Dewease, in his rearview mirror.

A fast closing Danny Dietrich, who advanced four spots, finished third on Friday night, followed by defending All Star Circuit of Champions champion, Tyler Courtney, and Bloomsburg Fair Raceway winner, Anthony Macri.

“We had a really good car all night. I could pretty much move around to wherever I wanted to, especially down in one and two where I could run the top and the bottom,” Brent Marks expressed, ace of the M&M Painting and Construction/BAPS Auto Paint and Supply/No. 19 sprint car. “I started to feel the top go away when I was racing in traffic, and after that last restart, I felt like I needed to start running the bottom. One thing about Lance, I know where he’s going to be around this place. To be able to beat a guy who is so strong here is pretty special.

“Just hats off to this whole team,” Marks continued. “We had a rough last few days with losing a race at Bridgeport due to a parts failure, and fighting gremlins all night last night at Bloomsburg…the guys just refuse to give up and continue to give me a great car. And here we are tonight.”

“Brent was definitely the class of the field tonight,” Lance Dewease said of Brent Marks. “We weren’t very good there and I tried a lot of different lines. We just decided to duck in behind him and hope to get lucky in traffic. He’s becoming a really good racer and for sure one of the fastest in the country.”
