COMPLETES 2018 SEASON IN WORLD 100 AT ELDORA
(October 18, 2018)
Over a month removed from the original 'World 100' date, the completion
of the rain-postponed crown jewel spectacular took place on October
12-13 at the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Action
was scheduled to start on Friday evening at the "Big E"
with a pair of $10,000 to win Twin 25s, but additional inclement
weather pushed back the preliminary program to Saturday afternoon.
Jimmy Mars placed seventh in his loaded heat race prior to grabbing
the third transfer spot through his B-Main. Jimmy then started twenty-first
on the grid in his 25-lap main event, but was eventually forced
to settle for a twenty-third place performance.
Following a several hour break to clear the grandstands and rework
the racetrack, the nighttime portion of the day/night doubleheader
took place on Saturday evening and all eyes were focused on capturing
the $51,000 top prize in the 48th edition of the 'World 100.' Jimmy
advanced up to fourth in his stacked heat race and later finished
third in his B-Main. After rolling off from the inside of the thirteenth
row in the 100-lap headliner, the Menomonie, Wisconsin star retired
after 83 circuits with rear end issues on his #28 mount. Jimmy was
relegated to another twenty-third place effort on the day in the
"Biggest Dirt Race in the World." Complete results from
the 2018 season finale at Eldora Speedway can be located online

Now that the 2018 campaign is complete for Mars Racing, they can
look back on what was a strong season that included seven (7) wins,
eighteen (18) top fives, and twenty-nine (29) top tens in the forty-eight
(48) races that they entered. Jimmy's biggest victory of the year
came back on August 17 when he picked up the $5,555 triumph in the
'Duane Mahder Memorial' at the nearby Red Cedar Speedway in Menomonie,
Wisconsin. In a year that he was inducted into the Dirt Late Model
Hall of Fame, Jimmy also transferred into several marquee crown
jewel headliners including the 'Show-Me 100,' the 'Dirt Late Model
Dream,' the 'USA Nationals,' the 'North/South 100,' the 'Knoxville
Late Model Nationals,' and the 'World 100.' You can view all of
