Rocky Mountain Race Week Winner Tina Pierce

July 19th, 2018

If pretty Tina Pierce looks familiar to you, it’s probably from Street Outlaws on the Discovery Channel. What will not be familiar  is the awesome looking new Chevrolet Colorado pickup that she is driving the thousand-or-so-miles of Rocky Mountain Race Week (RMRW).

After a dramatic crash that left Tina’s previous ride in tatters, she opted to go with a big block engine and a pair of turbochargers (in the bed) of her new truck. The square-nosed Colorado provides the perfect first impression for any race truck and the rose-wine color is stunning.

This is the maiden voyage for Tina’s new truck and RMRW is quite a challenge; with four drag strips in five-days accompanied by a 1,000-mile road trip (utility trailer in tow). Honestly, it’s a dubious test on a proven car but on an unproven one – who knows what will happen.

Proving that she needed a truck bed to haul around her bad luck, Tina had problems with everything from the dash rattling off into the floor to severe wheel hop to a runaway travel trailer on a public thoroughfare.

After all is said and done, Tina is a great driver, this is a pretty consistent truck after all the bugs are worked out, and winning the Overall Event Title (and $15k) soothes a lot of aches and pains. Congratulations to Tina and crew and we look forward to seeing y’all at Outlaw Armageddon.
