Sammy Mars Makes Eldora Speedway Debut in DLM Dream

JUNE 9, 2024 - - - The Mars Racing team made their way to the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 6-8 for the 30th Annual ‘Dirt Late Model Dream.’  The lucrative weekend kicked off with a split-field, preliminary program on Thursday night, which shelled out a $25,000 first place prize.  Making his first-ever visit to the 1/2-mile speedplant, Sammy Mars timed in twenty-first quickest in Group B during qualifying prior to placing eighth in his heat race and tenth in his B-Main.

After watching Friday’s prelim at the “Big E,” the #28 team vied for the whopping $100,030 payday in front of a huge grandstand crowd on Saturday evening.  Sammy finished ninth in his loaded heat race and twelfth in his B-Main.  Although the Menomonie, Wisconsin ace was unable to transfer into either feature event, a lot of valuable experience was gained throughout the past few days.  Complete results from the entire ‘Dirt Late Model Dream’ weekend can be found online by visiting
