MOORESVILLE, N.C. – DGR-CROSLEY announced Tuesday that Justin Marks will drive for the team in Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Marks, coming off a 12th-place finish in the Daytona 500, will pilot the No. 54 Crosley Toyota Tundra for the organization.

The 36-year-old California native has made 73 starts across NASCAR’s three top series. He has a win in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series in 2016 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on his resume.

“Justin is a great talent and someone that has extensive racing experience across several different series,” said David Gilliland, president of DGR-CROSLEY. “We are happy to have him in our equipment and believe he gives us a great opportunity to leave Vegas with a solid finish.”

Marks, who currently races full time in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, has two prior starts at the 1.5-mile track in Las Vegas, one of which was in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2008.

“The Truck Series has always been one of my favorite in all of racing in America,” said Marks. “The opportunity to drive for DGR-CROSLEY came pretty late but everything that David [Gilliland] and Bo [LeMastus, President of Crosley Sports Group] have done to build a competitive operation made it a very compelling situation to get back in a truck. All the pieces are there for us to have a great night and a great result for the Crosley Toyota.”
