Petaluma, CA- After two years racing in ARCA and NASCAR, former BMW factory driver, Justin Marks is returning to his road racing roots and will compete in the 2009 Grand-American Rolex Sports Car Series. By accepting an offer to drive for TRG, Marks will be co-driving with fellow stock-car driver and 2006 Rolex series Champion, Andy Lally in the No. 67 TRG/Construct Corps/No Fear Energy/Kartel/K1 Speed/Gemstone Winery Porsche GT3.

"It's a cool deal coming back to TRG 8 years after I made my professional racing debut with them in 2000," stated Marks. "We've raced against each other for many years and I have a lot of respect for the organization and what they've accomplished. Kevin and Debra have built a powerhouse team in sports-car racing and I look forward to working hard and delivering them a championship trophy in 2009"

Marks joins the team with an impressive history of success in both stock-car and sports-car racing. Following a Grand-American career that included seven Rolex series victories and five KONI Challenge series victories, Marks quickly acclimated to the stock-car world in 2007 and 2008 by earning the respect of his competitors following several top 10 finishes.

"The two years I spent on ovals have really been fantastic in helping me develop as a racing driver. The competition on and off the racetrack is so fierce. It teaches you to take risks, be tough and approach racing with a level of intensity I hadn't yet experienced in road racing," said Marks. "I think the lessons I've learned in stock-car racing will translate well to this program. I am more motivated for 2009 than ever before and I'm really aiming to hit the ground running hard and fast and driving every lap the same way: to win"

Justin is slated to drive his 2009 Porsche GT3 Cup Car on January 3rd, 2009 at the 'Roar before the Rolex 24' Grand-Am test days at Daytona International Speedway.

Marks' co-driver, Andy Lally spent 2008 driving in Grand-Am, ARCA and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and is extremely pleased to be back in a Porsche with such a talented co-driver.

"Justin is an awesome driver and a terrific teammate and I am really happy to be paired with him for 2009," quoted Lally. "Obviously we have a real shot at the Championship here so both of us will be focusing diligently on maximizing every aspect of this program. We are racing to win"

Lally has been busy driving for both TRG and TRG Motorsports and has become a veritable threat in every series that he competes in.
