Peak Fitness Racing was a NASCAR Winston Cup team owned by Jeff Stec and fields Fords for Kevin Lepage. The team was sold to Front Row Motorsports in April 2006.

2005 Edit

The team was formed in 2005 by Hermie Sadler when his team, SCORE Motorsports, sold out. Sponsor PEAK Fitness saw a good oppurtunity and bought the team. The team agree to keep Sadler with engine support from Robert Yates Racing. With additional support from ACE & TJ Show and East Tennessee Trailers, the team decided to attempt all 36 races. However, the team definitely struggled early. The team missed three out of the first four races, with the one start at Las Vegas was 33rd after a crash. The team rebounded, making 7 of the next 9 races, but after Dover, Sadler and Stec seperated. The team's best run to that point was with a 29th at Texas and Talladega.

Stec went then to Mike Garvey, and with sponsorship from Jani-King, the team made its first race at Pocono. There Garvey led the team's first ever lap and finished on the lead lap with a 25th place finish. However, it was the best run for Garvey in six races. However, Garvey finished all six races. After Garvey did not qualify at New Hampshire, Stec parted ways with Garvey.

While Garvey was driving the #66 with limited expierence, Jimmy Spencer took the reigns at Michigan.

Stec then convinced Kevin LePage to join the #66 team. This combination proved effective. LePage made all but one of his attempts. This included at 6th place start at Kansas, 13th at Atlanta and 17th at Charlotte. Finishwise, LePage set the team best finish of 21st at Charlotte and finished all but one race. All this led to LePage getting the full time ride in 2006.

On a side note, Hermie Sadler returned to the team for a one-race deal at Martinsville in the fall. He finished 32nd in the Jerry Kilgore Ford. LePage would have been the driver, but Sadler brought needed sponsorship.

2006 Edit

Kevin Lepage and Jeff Stec made all but two races in early 2006. The team missed Martinsville and later Darlingtron, showing a definitely improvement from 2005. The most major change was the number. Haas CNC Racing bought #66 from Stec, and the team became the #61.

LePage had a best finish of 25th at Daytona. He also had a solid top-20 run at Atlanta before a late flat tire. The team didn't have full-time sponsorship, but Mountain Dew's AMP Energy Drink and RoadLoans had limited sponsorship deals.

However, following the Talladega race, Stec sold his share to Front Row Motorsports where the #61 still runs part-time in the Nextel Cup Series team.
