(August 27, 2020) Mars Racing entered a pair of $5,000 to win shootouts at Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wisconsin and Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin over the August 21-22 weekend. On Friday night in the 'Dairyland Showdown' at MTS, Jimmy Mars placed fourth in his heat race and was scheduled to roll off from the inside of the sixth row in the 40-lap main event. However, Mother Nature intervened and the rain showers pushed back the feature until Friday, August 28.

At Cedar Lake on Saturday evening, Jimmy ran eighth in his loaded heat race and fifth in the B-Main, but later put on a show during the headliner to pass sixteen competitors en route to a strong fifth place effort. At the checkers, the Menomonie, Wisconsin star trailed only winner James Giossi, Darrell Nelson, A.J. Diemel, and John Kaanta. Complete results from CLS can be viewed online at

The #28 team will return to Mississippi Thunder Speedway on Friday, August 28 to conclude the rain-postponed 'Dairyland Showdown.' Not only will a $5,000 top prize be on the line in the 40-lap make-up race, but another show for the Late Models has been added to the card for tomorrow evening at the Fountain City, Wisconsin oval. Jimmy will vie for the $2,000 winner's check in the complete program added this week by track officials. More information on these races can be found online at
