Dacono, CO (8/13/2016) - Brian Barsh won his third consecutive Rocky Mountain Racing UTV Racing Association A Class ATV race at IMI Motorsports Park. First-time RMURA racers Cole Racine and Kevin Kirkpatrick rounded out the podium. Megan Heil, who has been a top competitor in the first two races, was sidelined with mechanical issues.

The event was again run in a two-moto format and both motos featured radically different track conditions. Cool overcast weather in the first moto resulted in significant blue groove. In the second moto, the sun broke through, raising temperatures and bringing visibility issues to another record turnout of ATV racers.

In the end, Barsh didn’t care. He dominated both motos easily to net yet another overall win. “The track was awesome, everything went well and I was blessed with another win,” said Barsh. “Megan and I were side by side at the start of the first moto and something went wrong in her clutch. The weather was perfect today and the track was just perfect. Every week, we’re bringing more and more racers out.”

“I was by myself in both motos; Brian is just too fast,” said Racine. “I don’t think I would have finished second if Megan was running right. I came out here to see how fast she was. Brian brought us out this weekend, but we’re planning to do more. Grand Junction is next. That’ll be exciting.”
