(September 5, 2019)
Mars Racing headed south to the Land of Lincoln on August 30-31 for a pair of $5,000 to win American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT) throwdowns to start off their hectic Labor Day weekend. On Friday night at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois, Jimmy Mars ran second in his heat race, drew the pole position prior to the start of the 40-lap main event, and led most of the first half of the race before settling for a strong runner-up performance behind only victor Bobby Pierce. In a similar contest on Saturday evening at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, Jimmy placed second in heat race action and later stormed up to second in the 40-lapper to record another runner-up effort behind only race winner Frank Heckenast, Jr. (Todd Healy Photo)

The tripleheader weekend for the Menomonie, Wisconsin star was then capped off on Sunday, September 1 at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio with the annual running of the 'Baltes Classic.' The American Late Model Series (ALMS) presided over the single-day program and 38 competitors signed into the pit area to do battle for the $5,000 payday. Jimmy clicked off the second fastest lap in his group during qualifying prior to finishing third in his stacked heat race. After rolling off from the inside of the fifth row in the 30-lap sprint, the popular driver known as "The Iceman" steered his MB Customs mount past a handful of competitors to nab a strong fourth place showing behind only winner Ricky Weiss, Freddie Carpenter, and Zack Dohm. Full results from the busy holiday weekend can be viewed online at www.aelmt.com and www.eldoraspeedway.com.
