ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – It had been eight years since Brent Marks saw victory lane at Lincoln Speedway. Marks’ last win came on May 11, 2013 and 2,968 days later he earned his ninth career Lincoln victory. Marks addressed the lengthy absence in victory lane, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in victory lane here at Lincoln Speedway. The car was awesome all night long.”
Marks led from green to checkered and the closest anyone came to challenging him for the lead was Lance Dewease late in the race, “I hated to see those cautions there late. You never know what’s going to go on behind you, especially with Lance [Dewease] behind me there.”
Saturday night was the 22nd Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. In honor of Kevin’s family owned #92 sprint car, Marks took home a $9,200 check for his win. “It’s great to get another win under Kevin’s honor. He’s a special person and they have a special family.”
Marks shared the front row with last week’s winner at Lincoln, Robbie Kendall.
Marks led the field into turn 1 with Kendall using the high line to make up some ground.
California invader, Rico Abreu, lined up fifth for the drop of the green flag and ripped around the top of the track to get up to second by lap 2.
Lance Dewease got by Sam Hafertepe on lap 2 and went to work on Kendall for third.
Dewease got by Kendall at the line on lap 4 for third and Hafertepe followed.
