The Montezuma County Board of County Commissioners would like to welcome Julian Garcia of Garcia Motor Sports as the new race promoter at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds Racetrack. Mr. Garcia signed a five-month lease and then met with the Commissioners on Monday, April 25 to introduce himself and share his plans for the track. Racing will begin on May 13-14 and continue throughout the summer with at least 3 additional race weekends.
As the new racetrack promoter, Julian would like to focus on the facility, saying, “We not only want to run races, we want to get the facilities in better shape. That’s why we took this on.” He and his crew have already begun repairs to the track fence and wall, and plan to replace the concession stand roof, which blew off during the weekend windstorm. The Commissioners all thanked Mr. Garcia for his efforts to continue racing at the Fairgrounds. “Thank you for stepping up. We wish you a lot of luck!”
