CAPTURES THIRD STRAIGHT MAHDER 55 TITLE!
22, 2019) Menomonie, Wisconsin star Jimmy
Mars scored his third overall win in 2019 and his third straight
'Duane Mahder 55' title on Friday night, August 16 at his hometown
Red Cedar Speedway! Jimmy dominated the evening, as he won his heat
race in preliminary action, started the 40-lap WISSOTA Challenge
Series main event from the pole position, and later led each and
every circuit to pocket the $5,555 top prize over A.J. Diemel, Rick
Hanestad, Chad Mahder, and Lance Matthees. Picking up his largest
payday of the 2019 season to date was not the biggest moment of
Jimmy's night; however, as his 15-year-old son Sam Mars won his
first Limited Late Model feature event to give the Mars family a
very special father-son sweep! Full results from Red Cedar Speedway

"It was a very special night on Friday at Red Cedar and I'm
so proud of Sam for getting his first win," quoted Mars earlier
today via telephone. "Getting to visit victory lane is a cool
experience and when you can get your first win at your hometown
track in front of a bunch of family and friends, it makes it even
sweeter. As for our car, it was fast all night long and we were
able to get another Duane Mahder 55 title, which is very special
to me. We have a lot of work to do at the shop on customer cars
and our own stuff, so we will be busy getting everything done in
time to go racing again over Labor Day weekend down in Illinois
and at Eldora."
Jimmy and his Mars Racing team are slated to take the upcoming
August 23-24 weekend off from racing action, but will be busy at
the shop preparing their equipment for a hectic Labor Day weekend.
Jimmy is scheduled to tackle Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City,
Illinois, Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, and Eldora Speedway
in Rossburg, Ohio from August 30-September 1. All three special
events over the holiday weekend will boast a $5,000 winner's check.
