(September 9, 2022) Jimmy Mars and his Mars Racing team celebrated in victory lane for the ninth time in 2022 last Thursday evening, September 1 in the 50th Annual 'Silver 1000' at Halvor Lines Speedway in Proctor, Minnesota! Jimmy blasted past five competitors during his heat race to finish in the third spot and later rolled off from the outside of the front row in the 40-lap headliner, which was sanctioned by the Structural Buildings WISSOTA Challenge Series.

The Menomonie, Wisconsin Hall of Famer then took the lead for good on a lap 35 restart and held the point for the final five circuits to bag the $6,000 payday for his third career 'Silver 1000' title over Pat Doar, Kyle Peterlin, Jeff Massingill, and Trent Follmer!

“It was a great race and it always feels good to win the Silver 1000,’ quoted Mars earlier this week. “It is a very prestigious event up here and I’m fortunate enough to have won it three times now. There are a lot of cool, long-running special events in our area once the calendar flips to September, so hopefully we can get on a roll to close out the year and run well in them!”

Next up on the racing calendar for the Mars Racing team will be a visit to Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin on Saturday, September 10 for the 34th running of the ‘Northern Nationals.’ With tonight’s racing program at Superior already rained-out, the WISSOTA Late Models will run tomorrow in a single show paying $2,519 to the winner.
