WISSOTA: Jimmy Mars Storms to Viking Fall Classic Triumph at Alexandria
From Ryan Delph, Jimmy Mars p.r.
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - Oct. 8. Jimmy Mars visited victory lane for the eighth time in 2010 Saturday at
the Viking Speedway in Alexandria, Minnesota! Jimmy started off his weekend in the Gopher State by notching a
fourth place finish in his heat race on Friday, which locked him into Saturday's main event.
During the course of the 40-lap 'Viking Fall Classic,' Jimmy sliced his way through the field from his 18th
starting position and took the top spot around the halfway point. The Menomonie, Wisconsin native cruised the rest
of the race to record the $4,000 triumph over Lance Matthees, Marshall Fegers, Jeff Wildung, and Zach Johnson.
"We got buried pretty deep in the field after preliminary night on Friday, but I had an excellent car for the
feature on Saturday," exclaimed Mars this week. "I don't have a lot of laps around that place and haven't been
there a lot recently, but my crew made the right adjustments to the car throughout the weekend. The track was in
pretty good shape and I was able to race around it to make my way up through the field."
