WINS $10,000 FOR SECOND WISSOTA 100 TITLE!
24, 2021) National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Jimmy
Mars racked up his seventh victory of the 2021 campaign in the annual
running of the 'WISSOTA 100' from September 16-18 at I-94 Sure Step
Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minnesota! Behind the wheel of his potent
#28 MB Customs Late Model, Jimmy won his heat race before advancing
to a strong runner-up performance in Thursday's prelim feature behind
only race winner Cole Searing. On Saturday evening in the 50-lap
headliner, Jimmy started sixth on the feature grid, grabbed the
point on the sixth circuit, and drove to his second career 'WISSOTA
100' title. The Menomonie, Wisconsin star beat Dave Mass, his son
Sam Mars, Cole Searing, and Jordan Tollakson to the checkered flag
to claim the $10,000 top prize!

Jimmy won his heat race on Thursday night before securing a triumph
in his preliminary feature event. He then started third on the grid
in the 40-lap main event on Saturday and led some laps early in
the distance before some minor motor issues caused him to slip back
to sixth by the end of the $6,000 to win contest. Full results from
the entire week at I-94 Speedway can be accessed online at www.i94speedways.com.
"It was a lot of fun to race in the WISSOTA 100 again,"
quoted Mars this week via telephone. "Sam (Mars) wanted to
race over there and I haven't gone racing with him as much as I
probably should have this year. It was a good weekend for the both
of us and we've been working hard this week at the shop to gear
up for the Punky Manor. That's always a special race for myself
and a lot of our sponsors from around the area, so hopefully we
can compete for another win this weekend!"
The 'WISSOTA 100' triumph gives Mars Racing added momentum heading
into one of their biggest races of the year - the 41st Annual 'Punky
Manor Challenge of Champions' at their hometown Red Cedar Speedway
on September 24-25. Jimmy once again plans on unloading both his
Late Model and his Modified at the Menomonie, Wisconsin oval this
weekend. A $4,000 winner's check will be on the line for the WISSOTA
Late Models, while a $2,000 payday will be up for grabs in the WISSOTA
Modified division. Jimmy is a multi-time race winner in each class
and will be looking to add another victory (or two) to his impressive
career resume. Additional information on the 'Punky Manor Challenge
of Champions' weekend can be accessed online at www.redcedarspeedway.com.
