Mars Racing Tackles Trio of XR Super Series Specials

JULY 4, 2024 - - - The XR Super Series sanctioned a trio of high-profile events in the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin from July 1-3.  Up first at Proctor Speedway in Proctor, Minnesota on Monday, Sammy Mars placed third in his stacked heat race prior to nabbing a strong tenth place performance in the 40-lap feature, which shelled out a $15,000 top prize.  In a similar $15,000 to win program on Tuesday night at Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin, Sammy ran third in his heat race, but was caught up in an early incident in the 35-lapper and was forced to retire in the twenty-fifth position with heavy nose damage.

The three-day stint with the XR tour wrapped up on Wednesday evening with the $50,000 to win ‘Minnesota Mega’ at Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, Minnesota.  Sammy grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race and later rolled off from the outside of the eighth row in the 50-lap headliner.  The Menomonie, Wisconsin ace then moved up a couple of spots during the course of the caution-free race and was officially scored in the fourteenth finishing position.  Complete results from all three races in the Upper Midwest can be accessed online by clicking on
