Brent Marks Opens All Star Sprint Tri-State Summer Swing With Win At Outlaw Speedway

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS – DUNDEE, NY – Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks has been victorious with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 on multiple occasions throughout his career, but never in the Empire State.

That statistic changed for the better on Friday night, kicking off the inaugural Tri-State Summer Swing presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts with a victory at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, New York, scoring an $8,000 payday in the process while bumping his season’s All Star win tally to three.

Far from a walk in the park, Marks, who started fourth on the Outlaw Speedway grid before claiming the top spot on the opening lap, was forced to not only fend off defending All Star champion and leading Series winner, Tyler Courtney, but also Danny Dietrich, who made a late charge on the “Myerstown Missile” after acquiring second from Courtney on lap 23. Courtney pressured Marks early, actually getting by the Murray-Marks Motorsports/M&M Painting and Construction No. 19M for a single circuit on lap seven before Marks reclaimed command shortly thereafter.

Traffic was a factor for much of the 30-lap contest, coming into play as early as lap five before a caution eradicated the issue on lap 10. Traffic reentered the picture on lap 19.

Boosting Marks’ ever growing resume, the Outlaw Speedway triumph catapulted his career All Star win total to seven, breaking the ice nearly seven seasons ago with a victory at the Port Royal “Speed Palace” in Port Royal, Pennsylvania.

“It got pretty hard to see at times racing amongst the lapped cars. I was just trying to be patient and not miss entries in either corner. With no wall around this place in the corners, it can be tricky. Not getting too high and over the track is what I really had to focus on,” Marks explained, a 14-time sprint car winner thus far in 2022. “Just hats off to this team…we had to battle all night long, as we were forced to change an engine early then swap rear ends. This win certainly means a lot to us, a great momentum boost heading into the rest of the weekend.”

“America’s Series” will continue the Tri-State Summer Swing presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts with a visit to Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, New York, on Saturday, August 20. Weekend action will then conclude with a one-night stop at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, New York, on Sunday, August 21. The events will award $10,000 and $8,000, respectively.
