Trifecta! Justin Peck Scores Third-Straight All Star Win; Takes $12K Tri-State Summer Swing Checkered At Bridgeport

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS – SWEDESBORO, NJ – For the third time in as many tries, Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner.

If that’s not impressive enough, the ace of the Buch Motorsports/Coastal Race Parts No. 13 sprint car acquired his third consecutive All Star triumph from the outside of row five, powering forward in a hurry before taking command from fellow open wheel hotshot and Myerstown, Pennsylvania, native Brent Marks on lap 21.

The $12,000 Bridgeport Speedway score bumped Peck’s season total to seven, as well as career All Star win total to 12, all of which accomplished at different facilities.

Although starting from row five, Peck made progress right from the drop of the initial green. By lap four, Peck had battled his way to fourth, climbing to third beyond Anthony Macri on lap ten, next getting by defending All Star champion and current point leader, Tyler Courtney, on lap 13. At the time, Brent Marks was the man in charge, and although the 2022 Kings Royal champion had built a comfortable advantage, Peck was quickly on the move.

By lap 20, traffic had entered the picture yet again forcing Marks to check up on his pace. Peck, who started to utilize the bottom of turns three and four, made his move on Marks on lap 21, sneaking by the Murray-Marks Motorsports No. 19M on the bottom of turn four. Although the pair exchanged sliders the very next circuit, Peck eventually found some space, maneuvering traffic well with Marks fading behind.

Peck’s final challenge occurred on lap 29 when caution flags appeared. Unfortunately for Marks, he was a part of the caution, losing a right rear tire and pulling to a stop. The ensuing restart would see Peck take off with Macri and Courtney in tow. Courtney would get by Macri in the final corner.

“I knew when I got by Marks, I was going to have to get going,” Peck said, who is currently second in the 2022 All Star driver championship standings. “I’m sure he was thinking the same thing. Not only are you racing these guys, you’re racing traffic as well. Marks, Courtney, Macri…these guys are all fierce competitors and it’s a blast racing with them. We’re going to celebrate this one and work to do it again tomorrow at Williams Grove.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will now turn their attention back to the Keystone State, ready to conclude Tri-State Summer Swing presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts competition with stops at Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, and Bedford Speedway on Friday through Sunday, August 26-28.

In what is expected to be a hard-fought tango with the Pennsylvania Posse, the All Stars will fight for a total winner’s share equaling $21,300 in the Pennsylvania trio, all of which kicking-off with Williams Grove’s annual Jack Gunn Memorial. The Jack Gunn will feature two, full 20-lap main events awarding $4,000 each.

Lincoln Speedway’s annual Kramer Klash, honoring National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Kramer Williamson, will pay $7,300-to-win, followed by a $6,000 showdown at the historic Bedford Fairgrounds.
