Keep Up on Jimmy Mars!

>> About Mars Race Cars:
Jimmy Mars Racing was started back in 1985 by Wisconsin native Jimmy Mars. Along with his brother and crew chief Chris Mars, the two had been around racing all of their lives and started putting cars together in 1988. Jimmy turned out to be a standout Dirt Late Model driver and Chris one of the most accomplished crew chiefs in the business. The Mars brothers landed in the spotlight in 1997 when they reached victory lane in the "Dream 100" at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

In 2002, Jimmy realized a need for a good, quality race car that came directly from a race team, instead of from a mass-producing chassis company, and the present-day Mars Race Cars was born. He chose MasterSbilt Race Cars to produce the frames, as he had a long-standing relationship (since 1991) with the Crothersville, Indiana chassis builder. Since that turn of events in 2002, the Mars Race Cars team has been speeding up the learning curves for drivers across the nation.

Mars Race Cars built a brand-new shop in 2005 to house their own racing efforts, as well as what would later become the brothers' innovative MB Customs brand, encompassing both Dirt Late Models and Modifieds. Jimmy and Chris, along with their talented staff, see upward of 100 race cars leave through the doors of their 20,000-plus-square-foot shop each year. Even though they continuously split time between their personal racing endeavors and their clients', Mars Race Cars continues to grow each year due to outstanding service, performance and commitment. Jimmy plans to keep building cars for the Mars Race Cars clientele well after his personal racing career is over, so you can count on Mars Race Cars and their MB Customs brand being a fixture in Dirt Late Model and Modified racing for a long, long time!



Below is a list of Jimmy's personal racing accomplishments with the help of his brother and crew chief Chris Mars!
