MARS RALLIES TO EIGHTH IN ILLINI 100 FINALE!
(April 19, 2015)
For the first time in three months, the Mars Racing team returned to racing action on April 17-18 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois. The World of Outlaws Late Model Series once again presided over the annual 'Illini 100,' but this year's version of the two-day affair was split into two separate programs. On Friday night in the $6,000 to win opener, Jimmy Mars clicked off the fourth fastest lap in Group A and later finished fifth in his loaded heat race. Following a third place effort in his B-Main, Jimmy unfortunately was forced to watch the 25-lap sprint from the stands after missing a transfer spot by one mere position.

The 'Illini 100' finale on Saturday evening at the 1/4-mile bullring boasted a hefty $15,000 top prize. Jimmy ran sixth in his heat race, but later grabbed the second transfer position through his B-Main. After rolling off from the inside of the tenth row in the 75-lap headliner, the Menomonie, Wisconsin ace drove past eleven competitors during the distance en route to a strong eighth place performance.
