MARS FOURTH IN $50,000 MODIFIED
(June 22, 2017) Jimmy
Mars unloaded his own #2 Open Wheel Modified from June 15-18
at the renowned Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin
for the 'Modified Masters,' which was sanctioned by the United
States Modified Touring Series (USMTS). Things started on
Thursday night with a $3,000 to win preliminary shootout.
Jimmy ran third in his loaded heat race and was leading his
B-Main until an incident with a lapped car took him out of
contention to earn a transfer spot into the 40-lap main event.
On Friday evening at Cedar Lake, Jimmy placed third in his
first heat race, while he won his second and final prelim
of the night. After earning the second most points through
heat race action, Jimmy ran fourth in the dash to claim the
outside of the second row for the start of Saturday's 70-lap
headliner, which boasted a whopping $50,000 payday. During
the course of the 'Modified Masters,' which spilled over into
Sunday afternoon due to rain showers, the Menomonie, Wisconsin
star vaulted to as high as second and battled for the lead
at one point before settling for a strong fourth place effort
behind only winner Ryan Gustin, Rodney Sanders, and Zack VanderBeek.
Full results from the extended weekend at CLS can be accessed

The Mars Racing team is now scheduled to enjoy the next couple
of weekends off from racing action, but they will be hard
at work in the shop and getting their new transporter ready
to hit the road. Jimmy's next scheduled event will be the
annual running of the 'Gopher 50' at Deer Creek Speedway in
Spring Valley, Minnesota on Saturday, July 8. The World of
Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series will once again preside
over the storied event, which boasts a $10,000 winner's check.
