Race Car Driver. Born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, he began his pro career in 1961, driving in the USAC Championship Car Series and his number 7 finish at the 1961 Indianapolis 500 earned him the co-rookie of the year award with Parnelli Jones. He finished in the top ten 25 times (1961-64), with one victory in 1962, at Phoenix. In November 1964, Marshman was conducting tire tests at the Phoenix 1-mile paved oval when he crashed and ruptured the fuel tank causing a fire. He later died from his injuries in San Antonio, Texas, at age 28.
