American Born Moonshine announced on Tuesday February 10th that they will sponsor Justin Marks next weekend in Daytona as he goes for the triple threat. He will race the No. 35 GoPro Motorplex/American Born Moonshine Toyota Tundra in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for WinTron Racing before racing the No. 29 Toyota for RAB Racing in the Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 and NASCAR XFINITY Series season opener.
“The partnership with RAB Racing and Win-Tron Racing is an incredible first step for us at American Born Moonshine to join the family of NASCAR and support Justin Marks,” Sean Koffel, co-founder, American Born Moonshine, said. “The foundation of our company was built on paying homage to the moonshiners and bootleggers of our country’s past and NASCAR has played a central role in that story.”
Marks will be attempting to make his first career Daytona 500 start after making his Sprint Cup Series debut at Sonoma Raceway in 2013. The 33-year-old ran an XFINITY race last year at Mid-Ohio, finishing sixth. He also has ran 35 Camping World Truck Series, scoring two poles and four top-10 finishes. Marks is the co-owner of HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks, a team that competes in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. He’s also the owner of GoPro Motorplex.
“This is the biggest week of the year for NASCAR and our team is ready to take on Daytona,” Marks said. “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.”
RAB Racing ran the full XFINITY Series schedule last season with James Buescher, finishing 10th in points with two top-10 finishes.
“We built RAB Racing around Justin in 2007 in the ARCA Racing Series,” RAB Racing owner Robby Benton said. “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. It’s great to bring in a new sponsor to the industry and introduce them to the strength of NASCAR and its loyal fan following. American Born Moonshine is a great fit for the NASCAR demographic and it will be nice to see the roots of our sport finding a way to advertise creatively in the modern era.”
