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.”
kicked off the 2016 RMURA season with
the win in the Unlimited UTV class
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.
