The MINI JCW Team will close out it’s inaugural SRO TC America season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The team is coming off another victory thanks to Mat Pombo, driver of the #61 STEP and MINIDealerCareers.com MINI JCW.
Pombo sliced his way through the field in race two at Road America. He had an amazing battle with series points leader Nick Witmer that culminated in an exciting drag race to the start-finish line.
The team will once again field four cars this weekend. Joining Mat will be his brother Mark Pombo in the #59 STEP MINI JCW. Mark has won three races this season and is still in contention for the drivers championship.
Nate Norenberg suffered a hard hit with the wall in race one at Road America and then had a nice bounce back in race two. He will once again be behind the wheel of the #59 MINI JCW.
Thomas Mejia continues to impress in the #62 Pledge to Humanity MINI JCW. He earned his second podium at Road America and should be a strong contender for another one at Las Vegas.
The collective efforts of the drivers have the team well positioned in the Manufacturer’s championship. They have a 13 point lead over Subaru heading into the weekend.
Race one at Las Vegas Motor Speedway takes place on October 19th at 4:40 PM EST. Race two is at 3:30 PM EST on October 20th. You can watch the livestream of the race at live.sro-america.com.
