BIGGER IN TEXAS: The Larson Marks Racing team travels back to Texas this weekend for three nights of racing with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series. On Thursday Shane Stewart and team will compete at Gator Motorplex in Willis. Following Thursday's event, the team will compete at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite for two nights of racing.
GATOR MOTORPLEX: Thursday will be the inaugural trip to Gator Motorplex for the World of Outlaws after the event was postponed due to rain early last month. Stewart, along with most of the Outlaws, has never competed at the quarter-mile in Willis, Texas.
2016 TEXAS OUTLAW NATIONALS: Last year at Devil's Bowl Speedway, Stewart qualified eighth and finished third in his heat race on Friday. He was able to advance two positions in the main event to finish sixth. The following night, the Bixby, Okla., native qualified ninth and won his heat race. After finishing third in the dash, Stewart ran in the top five throughout the 30-lap main event. On the final restart of the race with six laps remaining, he was able to charge his way to the top spot and earn the team's second win of the season.
LARSON MARKS RACING OWNERS: Larson Marks Racing is co-owned by NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series (NMECS) driver Kyle Larson and IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Series driver Justin Marks. Marks also owns GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, N.C. Since it's an off weekend for the NMECS, Larson will be competing in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour race this Saturday at Placerville (Calif.) Speedway.
LARSON MARKS RACING TEAM: The Larson Marks Racing team is led by crew chief Bob Curtis of Warrensburg, Mo., with Heath Moyle of Middleburg, Penn., and Dennis Christ of Fredericksburg, Penn.
