Justin Marks, Win-Tron Racing New Jersey Motorsports Park Advance

Millville, NJ (August 11, 2010) - Taking a break from the routine left-hand turns, this week the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards travels to New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) where 29-year-old Justin Marks and the rest of the field will make both right and left hand turns on the 2.3-mile road course. Marks, the most recent road course winner on the circuit at Palm Beach Speedway in February, will pilot the exact same No. 32 Construct Corps Dodge he pulled into victory lane at the Florida track.

What appeared to be another strong run at Berlin Raceway last weekend turned sour with 50 laps remaining of the scheduled 200, after a piece of debris punctured the housing of the transmission under the Construct Corps machine, forcing Marks to pull down pit road for repairs. The Mike Chaffee-led team went to work underneath the Dodge Charger, getting Justin back onto the track just 29 laps later. He would finish the night in the 21st spot, sliding him from the first position in the championship point standings back to third, just 30 marks behind new leader Craig Goess.

Placing Berlin Raceway in the rearview, Justin Marks and Win-Tron Racing will set their sights on the “Thunderbolt Raceway” this weekend, along with the signature thunderbolt-shaped trophy provided to the winner of the race. Though most of Justin’s prior road course experience comes from his years of racing in the Rolex Sports Car Series, the Rocklin, California native thrives on racing the twists and turns in any series. Differences between sports cars and stock cars are numerous, but the hot shoe has found a way to maneuver each different type of racing vehicle successfully through all the corners.

“In a sports car there’s so much more tire grip, wings, and less weight- you can be real aggressive and push real hard to get better lap times. But a 3400 pound stockcar presents an exercise in patience and smooth driving.  The limit of the tires under the kind of stress that a stock car produces is very easy to surpass, so you have to always be thinking about where you are on tire grip and be real smooth and easy in everything you ask of the car,” Justin commented about the two forms of racing.

“New Jersey is a good opportunity for us to get some of the points back that we lost at Berlin,” Marks continued. “The guys have worked to improve the car in a few key areas since Palm Beach and I think we can go there are contend for the pole and the win.”

Craig Goess sits atop the championship standings with 2830 points, closely followed by second place Frank Kimmel with 2820 points, with Marks in third at 2800. Coverage for this weekend’s events at New Jersey Motorsports Park can be found on ARCARacing.com through live timing and scoring, beginning at 11:15 AM EST on Saturday for the ARCA Racing Series practice session. ARCA Nation will also carry live coverage of the 150 mile event, beginning at 12:30 pm EST, which you can also find on ARCARacing.com.

Justin Marks on New Jersey Motorsports Park

With my background and experience, the road courses are definitely where we expect to succeed.  It would be a nice thing to win both races this season because it's honestly what we expect.  It's a good opportunity to take advantage of my experience and try to score maximum points towards the championship, plus it’s a nice break from turning left for months on end.

Co-Owner Nate Thiesse on New Jersey Motorsports Park
Last weekend’s race is just another testament to how hard our guys work to be prepared in any situation, and though it wasn’t the result we were hoping for, we can’t dwell on the past. We’ve all been looking forward to New Jersey since the victory at Palm Beach, and we know we have the right driver in the seat and a stout racecar to back him up. This weekend will be a challenge like any other, but I’m confident we’ll have no problem heading straight to the front.
