Mike Marlar is no stranger to dirt racing as he is the 2018 World of Outlaws Late Model Series Champion. He has hundreds of dirt racing wins to his name. Mike has also competed in the Gander Outdoor Truck Series back in 2019 making his stock car type debut for Reaume Brothers Racing at the famed Eldora Speedway for the Dirty Derby, where he finished fourth after starting the race 23rd. In September of the same year Mike made his debut in the NASCAR Xfinity series with MBM Motorsports at Richmond Raceway. There will be some challenges for Marlar to overcome such as having a spotter in his ear guiding him around the track. Luckily for him the format for the Food City Dirt Race is something he is very familiar with as NASCAR has opted to do heat races to determine the starting lineup for both the Gander Outdoor Truck Series as well as the NASCAR Cup Series.

Mike went on to say, “This is going to be interesting and I’m really looking forward to the challenge. This is something that would not have been possible without the help of Carl Long and Rocky and Tom Smith from Smithbuilt homes. This is such a cool opportunity for me being a dirt racer from Eastern Tennessee being able to compete in the top series of NASCAR at Bristol.”
