Rocky Mountain UTV Racing - Round Two Report

Hughes, who missed the first round while still getting settled after making the move into a new home, was glad to be back in RMURA competition. After missing qualifying, Hughes drove through the field to finish second in the first moto, but an overheating problem slowed his charge in the second moto and he finished third.

“I missed the qualifying, so I started at the very back in the first moto,” said Hughes. “That was quite a battle going through from the back. There are some really good drivers out here. In the second moto, I got the holeshot. It was fun battling with Chris and Dillon, but on the sixth lap, the car went into limp mode due to overheating. The series has grown huge from last year. Dillon was fun to battle with and Chris and I have always battled. I like the two-moto format. I hope they stick with it.”

In the SXS Youth races, Jacob Goodrich beat out Dwight Hughes’ son Connor to take the victory. Hayden Defeyter was third.

“It was fun racing here this weekend,” said Goodrich who won both motos. “I was by myself for most of the first moto. This track was a lot of fun.”
