LARSON MARKS RACING TAKES MOMENTUM BACK TO ELDORA AND LERNERVILLE

BACK EAST: The Larson Marks Racing team travels back to the east coast this weekend for two nights of racing. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will make the long haul from Calistoga, Calif., to Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio for Friday night's BeFour the Crowns event and will follow that up with the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Penn., on Saturday.
 
BEFOUR THE CROWNS: In 2016, Stewart qualified seventh in flight one of time trials and advanced two positions in his heat race to finish second, transferring into the dash. Stewart started and finished fifth in the six-lap Craftsman Club Dash. After four attempts to start the 30-lap main event, Stewart quickly jumped up to the runner-up position on lap three. He took the lead on lap 10, sliding under the leader in lapped traffic. After a caution with six laps remaining, Stewart regained the lead on the restart and never looked back, capturing his eighth victory of the World of Outlaws season.
 
COMMONWEALTH CLASH: Last year at the Commonwealth Clash, Stewart qualified sixth and won his heat race, transferring him into the Craftsman Club Dash. He started and finished fifth in both the dash and the 35-lap main event.
 
WEST COAST WRAP-UP: The Larson Marks team returns from the west coast after a great outing with two quick times, seven top-10s, five podium finishes, and three wins in seven races. The wins came at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., and Silver Dollar Speedway for the Gold Cup Race of Champions.
 
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. Larson will be at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Louden, N.H., this weekend to compete in the second 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.
 
LOOKING AHEAD: Following Saturday night's race at Lernerville Speedway, Larson Marks Racing will be back on track Thursday, September 28 at Williams Grove Speedway for the National Open and the Summer Nationals Finale that was postponed from July.
