WINE COUNTRY OUTLAW SHOWDOWN: The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and Larson Marks Racing conclude the second west coast swing with two nights of competition this weekend at the famed Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway half-mile.
CALISTOGA HISTORY: In 2015, Stewart timed in 14th in qualifying and won his heat race on Saturday night. He earned the sixth starting position for the feature in the dash and climbed to a second-place finish in the feature event. The following night, Stewart qualified second and finished fourth in his heat race, the dash and the main event.
WEST COAST RUN: In six races thus far on the west coast, the Larson Marks Racing team has been extremely stout, earning five top-10s, four podium finishes and three wins coming at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., Grays Harbor Racing in Elma, Wash., and the prestigious Gold Cup Race of Champions last weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. Stewart has also earned two quick times and has advanced to fourth in the championship point standings, now 482 points behind leader, Donny Schatz.
STEWART ON MOMENTUM: "We've had such a great run in these past few weeks," said Stewart. "I've had a shot to win every single night and that gives me a tremendous amount of confidence every time I climb in the car. I am excited to get back to Calistoga and hopefully I can pick up my first ever win there."
LARSON MARKS RACING OWNERS: Larson Marks Racing is co-owned by NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series (NMECS) driver Kyle Larson and driver/entrepreneur Justin Marks. Marks also owns GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, N.C. Coming off of his fourth win of the regular season, Larson will be at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., this weekend to compete in the first NMECS race of the post season.
LARSON MARKS RACING TEAM: The Larson Marks Racing team is led by crew chief Lee Stauffer of York, Penn., with Heath Moyle of Middleburg, Penn., and Dennis Christ of Fredericksburg, Penn.
