Modified Ace Marlar Steps Up For First Late Model Win at East Bay NASRA

TAMPA, Fla. — March 5. Following in his brother Mike's footsteps, Skylar Marlar, like his brother a star in racing's Modified division, stepped up to the Late Model division, and out-dueled ’09 NASRA Champion Aaron Ridley of Chatsworth, Ga. to capture his first-career Late Model victory.  It was the Winfield, Tennessee driver's first-career National All-Star Racing Association

Skylar Marlar

victory in only his sixth start in a Dirt Late Model on Friday Night at the East Bay Raceway Park.

Marlar and Ridley swapped the lead several times before Marlar could finally pull away on the 20th lap and lead the remaining six laps. There would be seven lead changes in just the 25 laps run at ‘The Clay by the Bay’.

Three cautions slowed the event, first on lap-16 as Jimmy Waldrop and Josh Peacock collected each other, sending both to the tail of the field for the restart. Also during this yellow flag, Shan Smith lost a rear-end, sending him pitside for the night.

The next yellow flag waved on lap 16 as Jim O’Hara, David Schmauss, and Wallace Peacock all collected each other. Schmauss and Peacock retired for the rest of the event.
