Mooresville, N.C. (October 6, 2014) -- Larson Marks Racing and driver Shane Stewart finished sixth in Saturday's prestigious National Open at Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania. The top-10 finish was the team's 29th of its debut season.
"I'm really proud of what this GoPro team has accomplished this season," Stewart said. "Competing with the World of Outlaws at a Central Pennsylvania track has to be the toughest competition, aside from Knoxville, all year long. To come in here and get another top-10 shows we're heading in the right direction. Steve (Suchy, crew chief), Bob (Turner, mechanic) and Andrew (Seamans, mechanic) have worked so hard to get us consistent and competitive and what they're doing is working."
LARSON MARKS RACING WINS AT WILLAMETTE
STEWART EARNS TEAM'S SECOND WORLD OF OUTLAWS STP SERIES WIN OF 2014
Mooresville, N.C. (September 3, 2014) -- Larson Marks Racing and driver Shane Stewart earned their second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the 2014 season in the GoPro No. 2 Tuesday at Willamette Speedway in Vancouver, Ore. The win stopped a six-consecutive win streak held by current World of Outlaws STP point leader Donny Schatz.
Stewart started second in the 30-lap race after finishing second in the dash. He maintained his position through the opening half and used lapped traffic to his advantage to take the lead from Joey Saldana on Lap 15. As Schatz closed in, Stewart held his line and managed to take the checkers and become the first World of Outlaws STP winner not named Schatz since August 15.
"I can't thank Justin (Marks, co-owner) and Kyle (Larson, co-owner) enough for believing in me and this race team and giving us a chance to come out here and race against these guys," Stewart said following the race. "Steve (Suchy, crew chief) and I have been meshing really well lately and I think our performances are starting to show it. We've had a great race car since we got out to the West Coast last week. There were a few things just a tick off. I knew if we got those figured out we'd challenge for some wins and it sure feels good to get one of them tonight."
