Justin Marks Filling in for Helio Castroneves at Stafford in SRX

Justin Marks is hopping back into a racecar, as he’ll fill in for Helio Castroneves at Stafford Motor Speedway in the Camping World SRX Series, the series announced June 25.

Castroneves has a scheduling conflict, according to the tweet. The NTT IndyCar Series is slated to run that same weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 3.

Marks last ran in the NASCAR Cup Series at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL in 2018. He also ran the Xfinity Series race there that same year.

He has six Cup starts and 35 NXS starts, earning a victory at Mid-Ohio in 2016. He’s also earned three top fives and seven top 10s.

Marks runs a Cup team with Pitbull, fielding Nos. 1 and 99 driven by Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez, respectively. Chastain earned two wins this season, while Suarez won his first Cup race at Sonoma Raceway.
