(August 9, 2020) Jimmy Mars and his #28 team competed in one of their favorite events of the season from August 6-8, as the 33rd edition of the 'USA Nationals' was held at the renowned Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin.

Jimmy finished fifth in his first heat race of the night, while he wound up a close second in his final prelim. After amassing the ninth most passing points in preliminary action, the Menomonie, Wisconsin ace rolled off from the inside of the fifth row in Saturday's 100-lap 'USA Nationals.' Gunning for his third race title, Jimmy was able to blast past six competitors during the extra-distance affair to garner an impressive third place podium effort behind only race winner Brandon Overton and runner-up Rick Eckert!
