Mars Still Building Cedar Lake "Legend"

Track report

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. - Sept. 18. In one of 36 total events that Cedar Lake Speedway launched over its final weekend of racing, Jimmy Mars captured a $5,000 win in the "Legendary 100" Late Model headliner at the track at which the Elk Mound driver cut his racing teeth.

Coming off the pole position to win a 25-lap race in Thursday's opening night qualifying event, Mars took up his position on the pole for Saturday's NASCAR-sanctioned 40-lap race. After the track held a tribute to the late Brent Laursen, a former competitor here, the race got underway with Mars moving straight to the lead over Doar.

The first of two cautions appeared on lap five when Mike Nutzmann stopped on the track, and  again on lap eight when Scott Greer's brakes expired, sending him hard into the wall in turn three.

 

After Greer's heavily damaged car was cradled  to the pits, thre remaining 32 laps ran under green, and Mars took adavntage, working traffic to perfection as he steadily pulled away from a fierce battle for second between Doar and Jake Redetzke.  As Mars claimed a dominant win after lapping up to tenth place, Doar was able to hold off Redetzke for second. Chad Mahder and 14th starting Nick Anvelink completed the top five.
