Last-Lap Pass Lifts Marks Past Macri

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — After consecutive rainouts, the 33rd annual PA Sprint Speedweek got back on the track Wednesday night at Hagerstown Speedway.

Macri led the first five laps from the pole, with Marks leading lap six. Macri regained control and set the pace until Marks reeled him in on lap 27. Marks paced lap 28, Macri held the advantage at the white flag and Marks sped to the checkered flag ahead of his challenger.
