GETS FIFTH WIN OF '21 SEASON AT RICE LAKE!
(August 3, 2021) National Dirt
Late Model Hall of Famer Jimmy Mars was busy with the Structural
Buildings WISSOTA Challenge Series in his home state of Wisconsin
from July 29-31 and was able to record his fifth triumph of the
2021 racing season! On Saturday night at Rice Lake Speedway in Rice
Lake, Wisconsin, Jimmy advanced three spots in his heat race to
finish second and later rolled off from the outside of the second
row in the 40-lap 'Swant Graber Motors 40.' Jimmy then streaked
past leader Steve Laursen with an outside move to grab the point
on lap 30 and led the remainder of the feature distance to pocket
the $2,000 top prize ahead of Laursen, Rick Hanestad, Jake Redetzke,
and his son Sam Mars!
Earlier in the hectic extended weekend, the Mars Racing team was
in the pit area on Thursday at ABC Raceway in Ashland, Wisconsin
for the 'Tanner Byholm Memorial,' which shelled out a $3,444 winner's
check. Jimmy won his heat race in preliminary action and later moved
up three positions during the 44-lap headliner en route to a fifth
place performance behind only victor Jesse Glenz, Pat Doar, Derek
Vesel, and John Kaanta.
At Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin on Friday, a pair
of $2,000 paydays were on the line in the annual running of the
'Twin Ports Twin 25s.' After climbing to third in his heat race,
Jimmy started second on the grid in the first 25-lapper, but unfortunately
suffered a flat tire and was relegated to an eighteenth place showing.
That put him starting from the outside of the ninth row in the final
'Twin Ports Twin 25' and the Menomonie, Wisconsin native made the
most it by passing twelve competitors on his way to a steady sixth
place effort. Full results from each of these WISSOTA Challenge
Series races can be viewed online at www.wissotachallengeseries.com.
The #28 team has another hectic week in store, as the World of
Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series roars into the Badger
State to preside over races at both Outagamie Speedway in Seymour,
Wisconsin and Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin. Up
first will be a visit to Outagamie Speedway later tonight, August
3, for the $10,000 to win 'FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.' The action
will then quickly turn to the renowned Cedar Lake Speedway from
August 5-7 for the 34th Annual 'USA Nationals.'
Things will kick off at the 3/8-mile facility on Thursday with
a $6,000 to win program. Double Drydene heat races and a dash will
then be held on Friday night leading into Saturday's grand finale.
The winner of the 100-lap 'USA Nationals' on Saturday evening at
Cedar Lake will once again receive a $50,000 windfall. Not only
will Jimmy be gunning for his third 'USA Nationals' title and the
carved wooden eagle trophy that comes with it, he will also compete
in the NASCAR Late Model portion of the weekend. A pair of $2,500
paychecks will be on the line on Friday and Saturday for the local
division that competes weekly at Cedar Lake Speedway. More information
