Things wrapped up in the desert tonight with the 'Wild West Shootout' finale at USA (AZ) Raceway. The six-race miniseries in Tucson concluded with a 50-lap throwdown, which boasted a record-high $11,000 payday to the winner. Jimmy Mars finished fifth in heat race action prior to grabbing the third and final transfer spot through his consolation race. After starting the feature from the outside of the eleventh row, Jimmy was unfortunately involved in a tangle with leader Darrell Lanigan and was ultimately the first retiree - winding up placed twenty-fourth in the final rundown.
