RMURA Rocky Mountain UTV Racing

Rocky Mountain UTV Racing - Round One Report

“I have a Turbo 1000 and there is no turbo class, so we ran in Unlimited,” said Gallegos. “I got bumped around a little at the start. I held a solid second and tried to stay out of the mud. It worked and I won the race. I ran the Sportsman 1000 class last year and won the championship, so I had to move up this year. The new turbo has more power than I know what to do with.”

In the Sportsman Class race, Gina Colosimo came out atop a thrilling battle with Chelsea Konces to win. Interestingly, Colosimo was driving her husband’s car here and they had to make several adjustments, so she could drive it.

“I’m super happy for the win,” said Colosimo. “My husband’s support is really important. We had to put a block on the gas pedal, so I could reach. It was different, but we finished first. I took Chelsea off the line. We battled back and forth, but she broke a belt and I won the race.”

“For a minute I was behind Tanner, but I managed to get past him on the inside,” said Galaviz. “I wasn’t nervous. I was just having fun. It’s fun to win, but at the same time, I just love racing. My dad always keeps me going. My whole family supports me.”

The RMURA Series heads to the East side of the Rockies for the round two at IMI Motorsports Complex on July 9-10th, so if you missed out on the opening round, be sure not to miss round two.
