Justin Marks going late model racing

Justin Marks may have retired from NASCAR competition, but he’s not done racing. The former NASCAR Xfinity Series winner and road course ace is headed to a short track near you, driving a Fury prepared late model.

Marks spoke with about the move this week.

“I’ve raced professionally for almost 20 years,” Marks told Speed51.  “With my age and a lot of other stuff going on, prospective business opportunities on the horizon, I wanted to get back to racing for fun and the enjoyment of it.”

Marks says he’s moved out west to California and plans to race super late model events. He kept the door open for coming east, however. His main action will come at the All-American Speedway in Roseville, California, but Marks mentioned Nashville, Pensacola and Winchester as potential events that could get him to come across the country.

That means potential entries in the All-American 400, Snowball Derby and Winchester 400. Schedule permitting, of course. Marks plans on competing in the IMSA Endurance Cup this year, which includes four ‘major’ events.

Marks holds one career win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, coming at Mid-Ohio in the rain in 2016.
