(May 14, 2017)
Jimmy Mars and his #28 team ventured to the Land of Lincoln from May 11-13 for a MARS Dirt Car Series triple shot, which kicked off with the inaugural 'Farmer City 74' at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois. On Thursday night in the $3,000 to win opener, Jimmy tripped the clock quickest in Group A during qualifying prior to scoring the victory in his heat race. After starting from the pole position in the 35-lapper, Jimmy hung around the front of the stellar field before eventually bringing home a strong fourth place performance behind only victor Shannon Babb, Mason Zeigler, and Billy Moyer!

At Farmer City on Friday evening, a whopping $20,000 top prize was on the line in the 'Farmer City 74.' Jimmy ran second in heat race action to transfer into the 74-lap main event, but a flat right front tire sent him pitside early in the race and relegated him to twenty-seventh in the final finishing order. On Saturday in the weekend finale at Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, a $10,000 winner's check was up for grabs in the annual running of 'FALS Frenzy.' The Menomonie, Wisconsin star placed second in his loaded heat race before notching a seventeenth place effort in the 50-lap headliner.
