SUNDAY'S DIRT-TRACK RACING: Brent Marks drives to $5,000 win at Selinsgrove Speedway
Brent Marks got his first win of the season in Sunday’s Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway.
Marks picked up $5,000 for his 410 sprint victory in the 30-lap event at the Snyder County facility.
Marks first won the Tilley Classic in 2013 and became the first repeat winner of the event held in honor of the speedway’s all-time career leading sprint winner.
Marks started second and stalked polesitter Anthony Macri, of Dillsburg, for the first eight laps of the race before taking over the top spot.
Marks went on to secure the victory over Macri, although second spot did change hands a few times in the closing laps. In the end it was Macri in second, with Justin Peck, Danny Dietrich and Dylan Cisney in the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Chase Dietz, Kerry Madsen, Lucas Wolfe, Blane Heimbach and Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody.
Dan Stone dueled with Andrew Yoder for the first half of the 25-lap super-late-model feature before driving to his first victory of the season and eighth career triumph at Selinsgrove. It was worth $3,000.
Jeff Rine eventually took second in the super-late-model contest, followed by Dylan Yoder, Gene Knaub and Andrew Yoder. Rounding out the top 10 were Jim Bernheisel, Andy Haus, Shaun Jones, Jim Yoder and Scott Flickinger.
