MARKS READY FOR A 2ND GO AROUND AT POCONO
CONCORD, NC (7-31-07) After a long two weeks off in the ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule, Justin Marks and the entire RAB Racing crew are eager to get back on the road and redeem themselves for the remainder of the 2007 season.
"It was a good thing for myself and the RAB Racing team to have a little time off," Justin Marks said. "The season has been difficult for us and this break has allowed us to get back to where we were at the beginning of the season and to prepare for a very busy month of August. We have some great equipment sitting in the shop, ready to hit the track and everyone is excited."
After leading 11 of the 80 laps at Pocono Raceway back in June, Marks' day was cut short when an engine failure sent him hard into the turn one wall.
"I think, with the way the race at Pocono in June played out, we were going to be in a very good position in the final laps of the race. We were fast on the track and Robby had a great pit strategy for the Crocs Dodge. I'm confident that we can return to Pocono with a race-winning effort and a fast racecar. We have taken a huge hit in the points this year and my focus now is to do everything in my power to put both Construct Corps and Crocs in victory lane before the years out. Pocono would be a great place for that to happen."
RAB Racing's primary sponsor, Construct Corps, will be on the #65 Dodge Charger for the Pennsylvania 200. However, the team has opted to bring a new look to the race track, removing all the colors from the car, and going with a black and white paint scheme.
"I think we all just needed a change," Marks continued. "We needed to breathe some new life in the team. I think more than anything, this is about the people that have worked so hard this year and put up with so much unfortunate luck. They all had input into a new paint scheme and everyone is excited about taking a new look to the track. Who knows, maybe it'll change our luck around."
Qualifying for the Pennsylvania 200 is set to begin on Friday, August 3rd at 1:45 PM ET with the green flag scheduled to wave on Saturday, August 4th at 1:00 PM ET. The Pennsylvania 200 will be aired live on SPEED beginning at 1:00PM ET.
