Board of Directors - Justin Marks

Justin is the founder and owner of DryLake Entertainment, and owner of Larson Marks Racing. Justin was born into an entrepreneurial household and has harbored the same spirit since a young age. From 1999-2004, Justin successfully balanced an education in Sports Marketing at the California State University while competing full-time for BMW of North America, LLC as one of a handful of factory-supported BMW drivers in the world.

Justin’s company, DryLake Entertainment, opened KartSport North America, a leading importer and distributor of kart racing products to North America from Australia, China, Italy and the Czech Republic. In 2009, DryLake Entertainment began the development of a world-class kart racing facility in Mooresville, N.C. Six months into operation, DryLake successfully negotiated a three-year naming rights agreement with GoPro®, makers of the world’s most versatile cameras, to rename the facility as the GoPro Motorplex.

Justin has successfully attracted a number of companies to auto racing and implemented partnership programs for several corporations including Intel, Infineon, CROCS, Carmax, Construct Corps, and GoPro. In 2014, this will include the newly-formed Larson Marks Racing, a 410 cubic inch winged sprint car team owned by Justin and NASCAR driver Kyle Larson and driven by multi-series’ race winner Shane Stewart.
Justin is married and father to an adorable little girl.
