MARKS WINS AT LIN COLN: Brent Marks raced to his third Lincoln Speedway sprint-car win of the season in Saturday's Outlaw Tune-Up.

Marks collected $4,000 for his win in the 30-lap feature.

Lincoln's program was delayed about 45 minutes because of Saturday's rain, including a heavy late-afternoon shower. When the show got going, action was fast and furious. Marks started second in the sprint-car feature and led all 30 laps, but with several different challengers. Stevie Smith, making his first start of the season, was an early challenger, while late in the race fellow three-time Lincoln winner Brian Montieth made his move.


Marks held on to the top spot to best Montieth. Thomasville's Greg Hodnett finished third, with Smith and Fred Rahmer in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Alan Krimes, Robbie Kendall, Steve Owings, York's Cory Haas and Lewisberry's Kyle Moody.

York's Jeff Rohrbaugh finished second, with Manchester's Austin Hogue in third. Hanover's Tim Wagaman and Niki Young completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were early leader Mike Duncan Jr., Tyler Ross, Mike Bittinger, York's Mark Strickler and Matt Findley.
