(MENOMONIE, WISCONSIN) Jimmy Mars, of Menomonie, Wisconsin, headed to his hometown Red Cedar Speedway on September 21-22 for the 33rd Annual ‘Punky Manor Challenge of Champions.’ For the second straight weekend, Jimmy picked up the victory in his new MB Customs Modified. After winning his heat race and the dash to earn the pole position for the 30-lap feature event, Jimmy led the entire distance en route to the dominating $2,000 win over Kevin Adams, Mike Anderson, Dave Cain, and Cory Mahder!
Behind the wheel of his Dirt Late Model, Jimmy went from last to fourth in his heat race prior to recording a third place effort in the dash. After rolling off from the inside of the second row in the $5,000 to win A-Main on Saturday, the driver known as the “Iceman” moved up to finish a strong second in the 40-lapper behind only winner A.J. Diemel. Full results from the ‘Punky Manor Challenge of Champions’ weekend can be accessed online at www.redcedarracing.com.
