Mars Masters Tucson Dirt


TUCSON, Ariz. — Jimmy Mars led all 40 laps to win Saturday’s NDRL Winter Extreme dirt late model feature at Tucson Int’l Raceway. It was his first victory since the 2012 season.

While Mars banked $5,000 for becoming the fifth different winner in as many Winter Extreme events, John Blankenship prevailed from a wild battle for second.

Billy Moyer Jr., Ryan Gustin and Tony Jackson Jr. completed the top five.

The finish:

Jimmy Mars, John Blankenship, Billy Moyer Jr., Ryan Gustin, Tony Jackson Jr., Justin Asplin, Tim Fuller, Jason Krohn, Pat Doar, Jason Hughes, Max Blair, Ricky Weiss, Tony Toste, Jason Papich, Brandon Sheppard, Justin Kay, Shane Clanton, Will Vaught, Chris Simpson, Kent Robinson, Terry Phillips, A.J.
