GoPro Athlete Justin Marks to Make NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut
GoPro will be cheering on Marks as he makes Sprint Cup debut in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 piloting the No. 7 GoPro Chevrolet for Tommy Baldwin Racing at Sonoma Raceway
Continuing his long-standing relationship with GoPro, Marks will pilot the No. 7 GoPro Chevrolet SS in the road course race for Tommy Baldwin Racing this weekend, marking the first appearance for both Marks and GoPro in a Sprint Cup race. As well, both Marks and GoPro originate from Northern California, so it is fitting that they team up for their debut at Sonoma.
Their partnership doesn’t end there, however. Just days ago, Marks’ state-of-the-art Motorplex Karting facility in Mooresville, NC, reopened its doors as the GoPro Motorplex. Already the choice destination for NASCAR stars, the GoPro Motorplex is the premier racing destination in the United States. Read more about it HERE.
As for his bid in NASCAR this weekend, Marks is both focused and excited. The venue couldn’t be more fitting.
“It’s really the culmination of a dream to be able to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,” explained Marks. “It’s fitting that it’s going to happen at Sonoma Raceway, where I kind of grew up racing and cut my teeth. I know Tommy and all the guys at TBR are going to bring a well-prepared GoPro Chevrolet to the track, so it’s just going to be a matter of getting to know the Gen-6 car and getting reacquainted with the racetrack. My goal for the weekend is to run a clean, competitive race and keep that 7 car up in the points.”
Good luck this weekend, Justin!
