HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi (HSMCG) announced today that road-course racing veteran Justin Marks will be behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro for two NASCAR XFINITY Series events this season. He will compete for HSMCG at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio on Aug. 16 and Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisc. on Aug. 29.
Marks, 34, has competed in many forms of road-course racing as well as in all three of NASCAR’s national series, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS), XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He was also part of the winning team in the 2009 Rolex 24 At Daytona in the GT division of the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship. An accomplished entrepreneur, Marks is the owner of The Drylake Group, a sports and entertainment development company, GoPro Motorplex and KartSport North America. In 2014, Marks partnered with NSCS driver Kyle Larson to form Larson Marks Racing, a World of Outlaws sprint car team. In 2015, Marks teamed up with HSMCG owner Harry Scott Jr. to form HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks, fielding five cars in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.
“I am really looking forward to having Justin race the No. 42 Chevy Camaro at Road America and Mid-Ohio,” said team owner Harry Scott Jr. “Not only is he a very accomplished road-course racer, but he is also a great member of the HScott Motorsports family. I really enjoy working with him on and off of the track and know that he will do a great job for us in both races.”
Marks competed at both Road America and Mid-Ohio in 2014 and scored his XFINITY Series best career finish, coming home in sixth place at Mid-Ohio.
"I am very excited to return to the XFINITY Series with HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi,” said Marks. “They have great people, great equipment and display great effort every time they're on the track. I really love road-course racing and look forward to this great opportunity."
Marks will be behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro when the XFINITY Series races at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Aug. 15 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, and Road America, Aug. 29 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Both races will air on NBC Sports Network.
