Stanley Marco Jnr – #11
Stanley Jnr has been racing for 3 years since he was 26 yrs old. He originally started racing with the SDAV Hot Rods because of his dad Stan Snr and continuing the family tradition but now can’t imagine racing anywhere else. In 3 years he’s accumulated a number of podium wins and has held a place in the State Title, Thunder Downunder, Legends Cup and The Ray Welsh Memorial. Awarded Most Improved Driver at the end of the 2017/2018 season, he is one to keep an eye on. Like his father, he comes out hard and fast and gives it his all – even if he doesn’t blink for the entire race!
He is part of Marco Racing – a team comprised of Father and 3 sons. He is the eldest son of Stan Snr (#5 – current VIC #1) and oldest brother to Tommy (#6) and Raedyn (#2). Family means everything to the Marco’s – Stanley Jnr’s Mum, Jackie, tries to get to every meet to cheer her son on from the fence and the Marco’s bring a cheer squad wherever they go.
Stanley Jnr is a concreter and works alongside his dad and brother in their family business Rock Solid Paving.
His sponsors include Indy Race Parts, Darby Paints, A1 Automotive, Rock Solid Paving, Fabricare Engineering, Fourth Designs, Cardinia Café, A+ Powder coating.
Like the other Marco’s, his favourite sport is AFL and he is a passionate Mighty Hawks supporter, helping to fill his dad’s house with Hawthorn memorabilia – much to stepmum Faye’s dismay! One look at their lounge room and it’s pretty clear where the Marco’s heart lays.
Stanley’s favourite food is KFC, his favourite drink is a can or several of Jim Beam Black Label and loves a bowl of ice-cream for dessert.
His most respected competitor is his dad (Stan Snr #5) and his biggest rivals are his dad, Shannon Meakins (#84), Dean West (#4) and Brother Tommy (#6) or in his words the ones “he loves to beat!”
He may be quiet in the pits but he loves his Hot Rod and loves to show it off – you can’t miss it – bright yellow and pink! Don’t forget to stop by and say hi!
