Justin Marks is taking aim at competing in all three NASCAR national series events at Daytona International Speedway next weekend, and he will do so with backing from American Born Moonshine.
Marks will attempt to qualify for the Daytona 500 (Feb, 22, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) in the No. 29 Toyota fielded by RAB Racing. He will also drive the No. 29 Toyota Camry for RAB Racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series event, the Alert Today Florida 300 (Feb. 21, 3:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1) as well as the No. 35 Toyota Tundra for Win-Tron Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event, the NextEra Energy Resources 250 (Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1). GoPro Motorplex will serve as a co-primary sponsor for the Truck Series entry with American Born Moonshine.
"This is the biggest week of the year for NASCAR and our team is ready to take on Daytona," Marks said in a release. "We are thrilled to partner up with American Born Moonshine and are hopeful that this will be the first of many great runs with them."
Marks has one career start in the Sprint Cup Series, a 30th-place finish at Sonoma in 2013 driving for Tommy Baldwin Racing. He has also made 10 career starts in the XFINITY Series and 35 starts in the Camping World Truck Series.
RAB Racing owner Robby Benton tweeted out what the paint scheme for the Sprint Cup ride will look like.

"We built RAB Racing around Justin in 2007 in the ARCA Racing Series," Benton said in a release. "He’s remained a good friend as he progressed through his racing career and I’m proud to have him back in our cars for Daytona."
American Born Moonshine was founded in 2012 by former Notre Dame quarterback Patrick Dillingham and U.S. Marine Corps Captain and Iraq War veteran Sean Koffel. This is the company’s first foray into NASCAR.
