Marks, 41, is co-owner of Trackhouse Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series.

Marks holds additional experience in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), competing multiple times in the prestigious Rolex 24.
The Myers Brothers Award is voted on each year by the NMPA. The award recognizes individuals and/or groups that have provided outstanding contributions to stock car racing. The award is named after Billy and Bob Myers. The award has been presented annually since 1958.
