Justin Marks Returning to Truck Series With Niece

Trackhouse Racing Team owner Justin Marks is coming back to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for a race, Niece Motorsports announced Friday (July 1).

He’ll pilot the No. 41 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with sponsorship from Worldwide Express.

Marks last drove a truck in 2018 for David Gilliland Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, finishing 11th.

“I’m glad I can help support Niece Motorsports and thrilled to be in the Worldwide Express colors,” Marks said in a team release. “Their Silverados have been fast this year so we are going to Mid-Ohio this weekend with the mindset of not only having fun, but believing we will run well. I know how fast Carson Hocevar was at the road course in Sonoma before he had to turn over the truck to Daniel [Suárez]. I expect he’ll be just as good on the road course at Mid-Ohio.”

Marks has four top 10s in the Truck Series.
