JIMMY MARS' WEEK AT ELDORA A SHORT ONE...

(September 10, 2021) The Mars Racing team recently struck out to the famed Eldora Speedway to compete in double 'World 100s' at the Rossburg, Ohio facility. The 51st Annual 'World 100' kicked off on Wednesday night, September 8 with a pair of Twin 25 prelims - each boasting a $10,000 paycheck. Jimmy Mars timed in eighteenth fastest in his group during qualifying prior to placing third in his loaded heat race. After rolling off from the inside of the sixth row in the 25-lap sprint, Jimmy slid back to post a twenty-first place performance in the opener.

On Thursday evening, September 9 at the "Big E," a whopping $54,000 top prize was up for grabs in the 'World 100.' Jimmy's #28 MB Customs mount showed speed in his heat race and he was vying for a transfer position until a blown tire sent him hard into the outside retaining wall. The Menomonie, Wisconsin native wound up twelfth in his heat race and unfortunately did not start the 100-lap crown jewel headliner that was ultimately won by Brandon Overton. The heavy damage to the car forced Mars Racing to head home and Jimmy did not compete in the 50th Annual 'World 100' over the weekend at Eldora Speedway.
