BLITZES TO RUNNER-UP AT DAVENPORT!
3, 2020) Jimmy Mars and his #28 team ventured south to
the Hawkeye State on May 29-30 for a pair of lucrative World of
Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series contests at Davenport
Speedway in Davenport, Iowa. On the 1/4-mile oval on Friday night,
Jimmy grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat
race prior to rolling off from the inside of the seventh row in
the $6,000 to win main event. During the course of the 30-lap sprint,
Jimmy fought hard to move forward in the race before eventually
being paid for a fifteenth place showing. (Todd
On Saturday evening at Davenport, a $10,000 top prize was up for
grabs with racing action slated for the sprawling 1/2-mile speedplant.
Jimmy knocked down the twelfth fastest lap in Group A during qualifying
before finishing third in his heat race. The Menomonie, Wisconsin
standout then started eleventh on the grid in the 40-lap weekend
finale, but did not stay outside of the top ten for long. Jimmy
wound up blasting all the way up to second to finish an impressive
runner-up behind only victor Brandon Sheppard! Full results from
both weekend tilts, which were held in front of no fans in the grandstand
due to COVID-19 restrictions, can be located online at www.woolms.com.
Mars Racing has opted to take the upcoming June 5-6 weekend off
from racing action, but will be busy at shop taking care of customer
cars and prepping their own machines for the 21st Annual 'Masters'
weekend. Jimmy will unload both a Late Model and a USMTS Modified
in the three-day extravaganza from June 11-13 at the renowned Cedar
Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin. A $3,000 winner's check
will be on the line in both divisions on that Thursday, while Friday's
feature events will pay $5,000 to win in each class. During the
'Masters' finale on Saturday, Jimmy will vie for the $10,000 payday
in both his Late Model and Modified. More information on the lucrative
weekend can be accessed by clicking on www.cedarlakespeedway.com.
