(July 14, 2022) With family and work commitments keeping Jimmy Mars close to home this past weekend, the Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer did take the opportunity to head to the nearby Red Cedar Speedway on Friday night, July 8. Another weekly Late Model program was on tap at his hometown track and a $1,000 payday was on the line. (Jacy Norgaard Photo)

Jimmy moved up one spot in his heat race to finish second and later rolled off from the outside of the fourth row in the 20-lap feature event. The popular driver known as the "Iceman" then steered past a handful of competitors during the contest to land on the podium in third behind only victor Mike Prochnow and runner-up Sam Mars.

Jimmy and his Mars Racing team will return to Super Late Model competition with the World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series from July 15-17 in the states of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. A trio of $10,000 top prizes will be up for grabs in successive days at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota on Friday, at I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minnesota on Saturday, and at Red Cedar Speedway in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Sunday. Jimmy will look to defend his home area against the national touring stars and improve on his eight career wins with the tour.
