(September 5, 2018)
Jimmy Mars entered a pair of special events leading into the hectic Labor Day weekend and was able to record a pair of Top Five efforts! On Thursday night, August 30 at Proctor Speedway in Proctor, Minnesota, Jimmy vied for his second straight 'Silver 1000' victory with the WISSOTA Challenge Series. The Menomonie, Wisconsin standout ran third in his heat race prior to picking off eight competitors in the $2,750 to win main event to earn a solid fifth place showing. Jimmy trailed only victor James Giossi, Jesse Glenz, Darrell Nelson, and Pat Doar.

At Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin on Friday evening, August 31, a whopping $15,074 top prize was on the line in the annual 'Scheffler Memorial.' Behind the wheel of his #28 MB Customs Super Late Model, Jimmy placed fourth in his stacked heat race before rolling off from the inside of the seventh row in the unsanctioned headliner. The popular driver known as the "Iceman" once again rallied up inside of the top five and was eventually paid for an impressive third place podium effort behind only race winner Scott James and runner-up Cade Dillard! Complete results from both weekend shows can be found online at www.proctorspeedway.com and www.wismotorsports.net.

Mars Racing will now make their annual September voyage to the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from September 6-8 for the 48th edition of the fabled 'World 100.' A complete preliminary show highlighted by a pair of Twin 25s will be held on both Thursday and Friday at the "Big E," as drivers will gun for the $10,000 payday in each of those four 25-lap sprints. Combined points from those two prelim nights will set the lineup for Saturday's traditional six heat races.

Following the heat races on Saturday at the 1/2-mile speedplant, two consolation races will finalize the starting field for the 48th Annual 'World 100.' A huge crowd is expected to file into Eldora Speedway to witness the 100-lap crown jewel spectacular, which is set to pay a hefty $51,000 to the winner. Jimmy has transferred into fifteen 'World 100' headliners throughout his career with his best finish of fifth coming back in 2004 behind winner Chub Frank, Don O'Neal, Brian Birkhofer, and Dan Schlieper.
