WEEKEND DIRT-TRACK RACING: Brent Marks earns $20,000 Outlaws triumph at Williams Grove

Brent Marks

Brent Marks came away the big winner in the World of Outlaws' visit to Williams Grove Speedway over the weekend. 

Marks claimed Saturday’s $20,000-to-win Summer Nationals 410 sprint race at the Cumberland County facility after Sheldon Haudenschild scored the $10,000 victory on Friday.

It was Marks' sixth career World of Outlaws win.

In Saturday’s 30-lap race at the Cumberland County track, Marks started fourth and took the lead away from Donny Schatz on the 21st lap. Marks then had to withstand several serious challenges from Haudenschild to maintain the lead. 

In the end, it was Marks over Huadenschild, with Schatz in third. Carson Macedo and Lance Dewease completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri, James McFadden, David Gravel, Aaron Reutzel and Lucas Wolfe.

"That was pretty intense," Marks said on the World of Outlaws website. "The track was tricky and the lap cars made it tough. We had a lot of close calls out there, but we survived and pulled it off. The track really threw us for a curveball, it was drier than we expected. We made the right calls, though. That was a ton of fun racing with Sheldon and Donny like that."

The Myerstown, Lebanon County, native was happy to call it a much-needed win for the Pennsylvania Posse.

"We broke the streak of the 4-0 Outlaws, so for tonight, I guess you can call us Posse," Marks joked on the WoO website.

Friday, Haudenschild led all 25 laps on his way to the victory.

While Haudenschild controlled the race, all eyes were on Dewease, who advanced from the 17th starting spot to finish second. McFadden finished third, with Schatz and Marks in the top five. 

Completing the top 10 were Gravel, Macedo, Brad Sweet, Hanover’s Logan Schuchart and Danny Dietrich

Dietz’s second overall win of the season was worth $4,000. Mark Smith finished second, with Blane Heimbach, Etters’ Pat Cannon and Ryan Taylor in the top five. 

Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Bradley Howard, Jason Shultz, Logan Wagner, Mike Wagner and Curt Stroup.

Brad Mitch was the roadrunner winner.

Ondek took the lead on the 13th lap of the 25-lap contest to score his first win in quite some time. Tony Jackson finished second, with Frankie Herr, Russ Mitten and Kenny Edkin in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Jay Fannasy, Brogue’s Tyler Wolford, Mike Enders, Lewisberry’s Scott Dellinger and Chris Meleason.

Troy Miller wrested the lead from his son Shaun and went on to win the limited-late-model feature over Randy Stoudt, with Shaun Miller in third. Dover’s Chase Billet and Dover’s Jed Latshaw completed the top five.
