CONCORD, N.C. — A co-owner with Harry Scott Jr. in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Justin Marks will compete for Scott Jr’s HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi operation in two NASCAR XFINITY Series events this summer.

Marks, 34, will pilot the team’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro in two of this summer’s standalone road course events at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Road America.

The Rocklin, Calif. native competed in both races for Scott Jr’s then team – Turner Scott Motorsports – coming home with sixth-place and 24th-place results in each respective race.

“I am very excited to return to the XFINITY Series with HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi,” Marks said. “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.”

A veteran of 11 XFINITY starts, Marks has an average finish of 29.9 in the series with a best finish of sixth coming with his Turner Scott ride last season at Road America.

Marks competed in one XFINITY race thus far this year with RAB Racing, bringing home the team’s No. 29 Toyota home in 34th after crashing out late in the race from a front row starting position.

Marks’s business partner in the K&N Pro Series East, Scott Jr., is looking forward to partnering with Marks for both standalone events later on this year.

“I am really looking forward to having Justin race the No. 42 Chevy Camaro at Road America and Mid-Ohio,” Scott said. “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.”
