Justin Marks made ARCA history Saturday afternoon, winning the rain-shortened Tire Kingdom 150 presented by ModSpace at Palm Beach International Raceway.
Marks, in the Construct Corps Dodge for Win-Tron Racing, earned his first career ARCA Racing Series victory utilizing rain tires provided by Hoosier Racing Tire, the first time ARCA has used a "wet" tire compound in its 58 year history.
The ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards is a lot of things to a lot of people.
To some, it's not much more than a stepping stone to the next level, and the fame and fortune of NASCAR. To others, it represents the opportunity to see if they have what it takes to get to the next level. And to yet another group of racers, it's home. It's the place where they will race as a career.
It's also place where the next pitch may be a high-speed curve ball, like the next event on the schedule at Palm Beach Int'l Raceway (PBIR) in Jupiter, Florida where drivers will spend more time turning right rather than will left.
Florida's Blake Koch may be very well be humming the tune "Who Says You Can't Go Home" this coming week as he is scheduled to drive for the championship caliber Eddie Sharp Racing team in the February 27 Tire Kingdom 150 at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida. Koch will be behind the wheel of the Tire Kingdom sponsored Toyota for his ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards debut.
"I am so blessed to be able to drive the Tire Kingdom Toyota at this race for Eddie Sharp Racing," said Koch. "There is going to be over one hundred Tire Kingdom employees at the Tire Kingdom 150 and I am honored to be driving the car they will be rooting for."
The ARCA Racing Series is set to hit Palm Beach International Racewayâ€™s road course next weekend. Thereâ€™s only a few days left to get your discounted tickets at all Tire Kingdom locations.
