Gleason, Marks finish 10th

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Chris Gleason of Johnstown and his co-driver, Justin Marks of Chico, Calif., placed 10th in Sunday’s Legacy Credit Union 200 KONI Challenge race at Barber Motorsports Park despite handling problems throughout the 21/2-hour event.

Gleason qualified eighth in the 19-car field with the Turner Motorsport BMW M3 Coupe No. 97, which is sponsored in part by Gleason Financial.

Drivers of Mustangs took all three podium positions, with James Gue and Bret Seafuse on the top step.

Gleason’s usual co-driver, Joey Hand of Sacramento, Calif., had a previous commitment to race in another series elsewhere during the weekend.

The race will be broadcast on SPEED at noon Saturday.

The next event is the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivieres in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, on Aug. 14-16. The last time Gleason raced there he won with co-driver Bill Auberlen on Aug. 19, 2007.
