EYES RAIN-POSTPONED WORLD 100 AT ELDORA
(October 4, 2018)
Menomonie, Wisconsin ace Jimmy Mars traveled to ABC Raceway in Ashland,
Wisconsin on September 28-29 for the annual running of the 'Red
Clay Classic.' Behind the wheel of Paul Gilberts' #28 MB Customs
Late Model in the $5,000 to win show, Jimmy ran third in heat race
action on Friday night prior to picking off six competitors during
Saturday's headliner en route to a strong third place podium effort
behind only winner Ricky Weiss and runner-up Travis Budisalovich.
In Open Wheel Modified competition at ABC Raceway, Jimmy ran fourth
in his heat race, won his B-Main, and later drove up to eighth in
the $3,500 to win feature event. Full results from the 'Red Clay
Classic' weekend can be accessed online at www.abcraceway.com.
Mars Racing, who will take the upcoming October 5-6 weekend off,
will now prepare to make a return trip to the hallowed high-banks
of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on October 12-13 for the remainder
of the 48th edition of the fabled 'World 100.' Jimmy finished a
strong eighth in his Twin 25 back on Thursday, September 6 before
inclement weather postponed the final two nights of racing action
at the "Big E." Things will pick up right where they left
off on Friday, October 12 with a pair of Twin 25s - each of which
will boast a $10,000 payday. Combined points from the two prelim
nights will set the lineup for Saturday's traditional six heat races.
Following the heat races on Saturday, October 13 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 storied career
with his best finish of fifth coming back in 2004 behind winner
Chub Frank, Don O'Neal, Brian Birkhofer, and Dan Schlieper. Learn
