The Minegar Racing team owned by Pat Minegar continues to battle through the toughest season in their history. Through it all, the team has remained focused on the future but they will look to the past in order to turn their season around this Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways outside Salt Lake City, UT for round eight of the CarbonX Rocky Mountain Challenge Series.
Dave Minegar of Boise and driver of the BodyBuilding.Com Chevrolet for Minegar Racing has won twice at the 3/8-mile paved oval along with earning three Sharp Powder Coating Fast Time Awards back in 2008. He is looking back to move forward. “As a team, we have worked through the mechanical issues,” Minegar said. “Our setups have not necessarily been a problem but in order to turn things around we are going to go back to setups we used two years ago. We were very successful with them and hopefully they will put us in victory lane again.”
Minegar has two wins and ten top five performances at RMR in 22 previous races. He has also scored seven of his series leading 23 career Sharp Powder Coating Fast Time Awards at RMR; a place that really suits his driving style. “We really like racing at RMR,” Minegar said. “The track is really fun to drive and I know the fans always see a great race. At this point in the season, it is time for us to lay it all on the line and hopefully we can get back to victory lane.”
Minegar is currently fifth in the championship standings after seven races with two top five and three top ten finishes. He is 181-points out of first place and 69-points out of fourth place. “We have a great championship battle going on between John (Newhouse), Steve (Jones), Brett (Thompson), and Lynn (Hardy). While those guys battle it out we are focused on winning races.”
