Brent Marks is the defending Labor Day Classic sprint champion as he came out on top of a wild three-car skirmish for the win during the final laps.

On the final lap of last year’s race, leader Dylan Cisney pushed his car into the first corner trying to get around a backmarker when Aaron Ott blasted the top into the corner and took the lead. At the same time Brent Marks surged as low as he could go into the turns and got by Cisney as well.

And then as they split the backmarker exiting the second turn, Marks drew even with Ott and then shot into weak control on the backstretch with Ott following directly behind him through the final turns to come up short by less than a second at the finish.

Monday’s Labor Day Classic for sprint cars sets the stage for the September 9 and 10 Tuscarora 50 races sanctioned by Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars.
