The MINI JCW Team traveled out west to wine country to compete in rounds 5 and 6 at Sonoma Raceway.

Mark Pombo in the #59 STEP MINI JCW had a great bounce back weekend. Pombo started race one in fourth and quickly moved up, holding the lead for more than a third of the race. He would eventually cross the line in second place to earn his third podium of the season.

His fast pace in race one awarded him the pole position in race two, where he would earn another second place finish. Pombo now has four podium finishes this season.

Nate Norenberg also had a great start in race one behind the wheel of the #60 Lincoln Tech MINI JCW. After starting in eighth he quickly moved up and ran as high as third for a large portion of the race before finishing in fourth.

An early issue in race two sent Norenberg to the back of the pack, but no quit attitude enabled him to fight his way up through the field for a hard fought sixth place.

Next Event

Next on the schedule is Portland Raceway on the weekend of July 12-14.
