MARS REPEATS IN WISSOTA 100!
22, 2022) Menomonie, Wisconsin Hall of Famer Jimmy Mars
repeated in the annual 'WISSOTA 100' on Saturday night, September
17 at I-94 Sure Step Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minnesota to reach
the double digit win mark for his 2022 campaign! Jimmy, who secured
a heat race triumph and a preliminary feature victory on Thursday
evening, rolled off from the outside of the front row in the 40-lap
grand finale that was actually held in the wee hours of Sunday morning
due to heavy rain showers. (Cody Papke Photo)
The popular driver known as the "Iceman" was the class
of the WISSOTA Late Model field in leading each and every circuit
to pocket the $10,000 payday for his tenth triumph of the year over
runner-up Don Shaw, Pat Doar, Cole Searing, and Chad Becker! Complete

“It was a great weekend for our Mars Racing team and everyone
that supports our program,” quoted Mars this week via telephone.
“The rain threw a little wrench into things, but our car had
speed each time it took to the racetrack. It’s awesome to
win a race like the WISSOTA 100 two years in a row. Hopefully we
can keep things going into the big weekend at Red Cedar Speedway.
We will have a lot of family and friends there, so maybe we can
put on a good show for them!”
The 6th Annual ‘Mahder 55’ will kick off a huge weekend
at nearby Red Cedar Speedway later tonight, September 22. The rain-postponed
race at the Menomonie, Wisconsin oval will shell out a $5,555 top
prize this evening. The 42nd Annual ‘Punky Manor Challenge
of Champions’ will then be held over the weekend at RCS. Heat
races will be held on Friday night, September 23, while the consolation
races and the $4,500 to win headliner are slated for Saturday evening,
September 24. Jimmy has won both of these special events on multiple
occasions and will look to add to his impressive resume throughout
the weekend! Additional information can be found by logging onto
