SOLID IN DLM DREAM PRELIMS; MASTERS UP NEXT!
(June 13, 2019)
Jimmy Mars and the #28 team made their annual June trek to Eldora
Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 6-8 to compete in the 25th
Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream,' which started with a pair of $10,000
to win Twin 25 preliminary programs. On Thursday evening at the
1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant, Jimmy finished second in his heat
race and ran in the top five through much of the 25-lap feature
before winding up seventh in the final finishing order. In a similar
$10,000 to win show on Friday night at the "Big E," Jimmy
placed fourth in his stacked heat race before moving up to twelfth
in the 25-lap sprint.
A huge crowd then gathered at Eldora Speedway on Saturday to watch
a lucky driver capture the hefty $125,000 payday in the 'Dirt Late
Model Dream.' Jimmy had a great starting spot for his heat race
- due to his strong prelim efforts - but his night was cut short
early in the heat when he was wrecked from behind by another competitor.
Severe damage to his #28 machine kept the Menomonie, Wisconsin ace
from returning to the racetrack and Jimmy unfortunately missed out
on transferring into the 100-lap grand finale. Full results from
the crown jewel extravaganza can be accessed online at www.eldoraspeedway.com.
The Mars Racing team is about ready to embark on a hectic weekend
in their home state, which will see them compete in the annual 'Masters'
at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin from June 13-15.
Jimmy is scheduled to unload both a Late Model and a USMTS Modified
on all three days to vie for the $3,000 top prize in both classes
on Thursday, the $5,000 winner's check in both classes on Friday,
and the $10,000 windfall for each division on Saturday. More information
