"This weekend at Port (Royal) was a little rough for us," said Marks, pilot of the #5 M&M Painting and Construction, BAPS Paints, Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel, Alkaline 88 Water, R.E. Pierson Construction Co., Wolfrun Landscapes, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Ecynbro Trucking machine. "Unfortunately things just didn't go our way. We had some speed and had a competitive car but I wasn't able to get us up front. The whole team worked very hard. The finale was difficult. We had a couple issues early in the night. We still managed to get us a decent finish going from 25th to 11th. We'll learn and move on to the next race."
The CJB team has a busy slate of upcoming events on their schedule.
"We will be at Lincoln (Speedway) on Wednesday for the $6,900-to-win show, BAPS Motorspeedway on Thursday," said Marks. "We will also race with the Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove (Speedway) on Friday and Lincoln Speedway on Saturday."
