MARS WINS LATE MODEL MASTERS OPENER AT CLS!
(June 16, 2019)
Jimmy Mars registered his first victory of the 2019 campaign on Thursday night, June 13 behind the wheel of his father-in-law's red #28 MB Customs Late Model in the opening night of the 20th edition of the 'Masters' at the renowned Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin! Jimmy won his heat race in preliminary action and later led from flag-to-flag in the 40-lap headliner to bag the $3,000 top prize over Chad Mahder, Pat Doar, Steve Laursen, and Jake Timm. After unfortunately getting crashed out of his heat race on Friday evening and missing out on the $5,000 to win Late Model feature, Jimmy rebounded in a strong way on Saturday in the 'Masters' finale. The Menomonie, Wisconsin star won his heat race, started from the pole position in the $10,000 to win main event, and finished in the second spot behind only victor Pat Doar.

Along with the Late Model, Jimmy also entered a trio of United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) shows from June 13-15 that helped make up the annual 'Masters' weekend. On Thursday night in the $3,000 to win opener, Jimmy won his heat race, led laps 18-37 of the 40-lapper, and crossed underneath the checkered flag second behind only race winner and fellow MB Customs driver Dustin Sorensen. At CLS on Friday evening, Jimmy advanced up to third in his loaded heat race and later climbed to sixth in the $5,000 to win feature event, which was pushed back to late Saturday afternoon due to a heavy downpour. In the regularly scheduled show on Saturday that boasted a $10,000 winner's check, the popular driver known as "The Iceman" won his heat race and led laps 20-26 and 28-39 of the USMTS finale before earning another runner-up performance behind only Ryan Gustin.
