In Kentucky, Marlar drove the Estes Racing Engines No. 78 and immediately won the heat race. In the main, Marlar passed race leader Jordan Bland on lap 18 of the 30-lap dirtcar series sanctioned event. Marlar, of Winfield, Tennessee went on to lead the last twelve circuits of the $3,000 purse and triumph over Victor Lee, Jordan Bland, Tyrel Todd and Don O’Neal.

At Crossville Raceway, Marlar drove his No. 157 machine in the Southern Regional Racing Series. He started the $3,000 to win feature from inside of the fourth row but was only able to move up three positions. He took fourth place behind  Dale McDowell, Randy Weaver and Billy Ogle, Jr.

“The weekend went well for us,” said Marlar. “We had a really good race in the Estes machine. It was a thrill to drive into victory lane at Bardstown.”

Marlar uses K&N Engineering air filters. “We only use K&N air filters because it’s simply the best product on the market,” said Chip Estes of Estes Race Engines. “We have our own shop and K&N gives us the best performance day in and day out.”
