Jimmy Mars Heads to Davenport Speedway Following Rumble by the River 40 Runner-Up

(MENOMONIE, WISCONSIN) The Mars Racing team competed in one lone event last weekend, as they ventured to Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wisconsin on Friday night, August 20. The Dirt Kings Tour sanctioned the annual running of the 'Rumble by the River 40' and 25 competitors showed up to do battle for the $5,000 winner's check.

Jimmy Mars won his heat race from the fifth starting spot and later rolled off from the inside of the third row in the 40-lap feature event as well. Jimmy then moved up to the second position and eventually netted a strong runner-up performance - 0.448 of a second behind only victor Chad Mahder!

The Menomonie, Wisconsin-based #28 team will now turn their focus to the three-day ‘Quad Cities 150’ presented by Hoker Trucking, which will take place from August 26-28 at Davenport Speedway in Davenport, Iowa. The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series will preside over the inaugural event, which will start later tonight and on Friday with a pair of full shows ending in a $10,000 to win main event.

Drivers will accrue points throughout the weekend based on qualifying, heat races, and feature performances. Those points will then determine the lineup for Saturday’s pivotal heat races that will help set the stage for the 70-lap grand finale, which boasts a whopping $30,000 windfall.
