The Xfinity Series will have another road ringer in the field when they head to Mid-Ohio and Road America this summer.
Justin Marks, who has made sporadic starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series over the last eight years and currently co-owns five K&N Pro Series East teams with Harry Scott, will take the wheel of Scott’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro in the two road-course races.
Marks, who was a winner in the 2009 Rolex 24 endurance race, has six previous road course starts in the Xfinity Series, with a best finish of sixth at Mid-Ohio in 2014. In that race, he drove for Steve Turner, who previously co-owned the team with Scott before Scott purchased full control of the team in 2014. Scott currently partners with Chip Ganassi to field the car, which has been driven by Kyle Larson and Brennan Poole this season.
Marks has one NXS start in 2015 at Daytona, where he finished 34th after crashing out.
“I am very excited to return to the Xfinity Series with HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi,” Marks said in a press statement. “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.”
“Not only is [Marks] a very accomplished road-course racer, but he is also a great member of the HScott Motorsports family,” Scott added. “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.”
