Sounds interesting, but how much experience does he have with the mods? Never heard of him driving one and I think he has only been a dealer for a chassis. Could be the next big thing though.

He drove one that I maintained in the middle 90's at his home track in Menomonie, he won 2 races that year and ran very good in the specials. He also ran one of his own cars last fall at Alexandria, Mn, I believe is was a BMS #428

Jimmy Mars came up through the ranks from street stock seasion champion at age 13, to super stock standout and modified winner before climbing in a late model.

Mars Racing offers drivers in all divisions consulting programs.

sure we specialize in Late Models and Modifieds" says Jimmy, "but we are able to help racers in any division achieve better results. In addition to Late Model And Modified, we have helped many Street Stock, Midwest Modified and Super Stock racers in their programs with our consulting services, from driving techneque through setup and maintenance.

Sometimes we can help guys in the pits on race nights. Other times we rent a track out for a day to save time and get together with a group of racers all seeking our input.

The bottom line is we have consulting packages for racers in all classes."

Below is a heat race video of Jimmy Mars in his personal modified at the 2011 Punky Manor Challenge of Champions.
Jimmy starts in the rear in the white # 428. Mark Gerth an employee of Mars Racing is in the white #2 BMS from Mars. The Black #91 is Craig Thatcher, 7 time Wissota National Champion.

Enjoy

I have a photo in the shop of jimmys BMS mod from a couple years ago.I got it because I liked the hood they had formed a small rise in the center like a cowl hood.

The MB Custom Modified will no doubt incorperate some of the technology that has been learned in the R&D program of the MB2 Late Model.

Only Jimmy and Chris can tell you that, and I'm sure if they did they'd have ta kill ya.

Truth be known however, in an interview I heard with Tim Isenburg, He mentioned that he has seen Jimmy substitute an MB 2 for the MB Custom (un be known to anyone) in some of the $10,000 shows as a part of his MB 2 R&D Program.

This tells me that they are definitely two different cars.

From talking to a driver last year one of them is an underslung car. I cant rember what one it is though but im sure thats not the only difference?

As far as the mod anyone know if this is just what they are calling the tracer mod that AJ built since they are now teamed up or is the tracer still gonna be around and sell 3 mod brands out of the shop?

I talked to Jimmy last week. The new MB Custom mod is not IMCA legal. He told me USMTS, UMP & open shows only. He said he will not build a IMCA legal mod.

In an article I saw in the WISSOTA paper All The Dirt, Blake Jegtvig of Hawley, MN and is a WISSOTA National Champion, will be in an MB Customs Modified this year. I think Late Model driver Adam Hensel will also be in one.

Per an Interview on dirtcast.com, Mark Gerth, who beat out Buzzy Adams for the 2011 Red Cedar speedway Modified track Champion in a BMS from Mars, will be driving an MB Custom Modified from Mars in 2012.

To listen visit: http://www.dirtcast.com/Nr9J/sound-off-mark-gerth-wissota-modifieds-022912/


Mars will now have 3 mods and 3 late models to choose from.
