MARS CAPTURES ANOTHER PUNKY MANOR WIN!
1, 2021) The Mars Racing team and driver Jimmy Mars captured
their eighth win of the 2021 racing season over the September 24-25
weekend in the 41st Annual 'Punky Manor Challenge of Champions'
at the nearby Red Cedar Speedway! Jimmy won his Late Model heat
race on Friday night and later rolled off from the pole position
in Saturday's 40-lap headliner. The Menomonie, Wisconsin ace then
topped the WISSOTA-sanctioned contest at his hometown oval to land
the $4,000 top prize over a top five that included runner-up A.J.
Diemel, Rick Hanestad, Chad Mahder, and Jesse Glenz!
In WISSOTA Modified action at Red Cedar Speedway, Jimmy advanced
three spots during Friday's heat race to finish third. The popular
driver known as "The Iceman" then started the $2,000 to
win main event on Saturday from the outside of the fifth row and
was up inside of the top five at one point, but was unable to finish
the race after a bout with the wall and was ultimately paid for
a fifteenth place showing. Complete results from the 'Punky Manor
Challenge of Champions' weekend can be found online by clicking
"It was another good weekend for us at Red Cedar and it's
always fun to help put on a great show in front of the hometown
fans," stated Mars this week. "Our Late Model stuff is
going real well right now and our Modified has been fast as well.
I had moved up into the top five in that feature and just tried
to knock down the fence a couple of times I guess. Chris, Jeff,
and everyone here at the shop has worked hard getting everything
back together this week and maybe we can get another victory in
Ashland. A huge thanks to Veit & Company, Vonco, Deppe Enterprises,
T.L. Sinz Plumbing, Keyes Chevytown and all of our other great sponsors
After watching the weather closely all week, the Mars Racing team
finalized plans earlier today to invade ABC Raceway in Ashland,
Wisconsin this weekend (October 1-2) for the 46th edition of the
'Red Clay Classic.' As has been the case the prior two weekends,
Jimmy will unload both a WISSOTA Late Model and a WISSOTA Modified
in the popular late-season special. Preliminary action will take
place later this evening at ABC Raceway, while the $5,700 to win
Late Model feature and the $4,000 to win Modified main event will
be held on Saturday evening. Jimmy has multiple 'Red Clay Classic'
titles on his resume with his last coming in a Late Model back in
2015. More information can be obtained online by accessing www.abcraceway.com.
