Chevy Colorado ZR2 Makes Competitive Debut

BAY CITY, Mich.,–– The "Vegas to Reno" race, the largest off-road race in the United States, broadcasted on August 19th. In the competition, over 350 participants compete in a 550 mile off-road race from Las Vegas to Reno. From mountain passes to desert wallows to dry lake beds, drivers put their vehicles to the test in a heated competition. The Chevy Colorado ZR2 made its competitive debut and received a 1st Place Best In Class award, finishing with 18 hours, 50 minutes, and 16 seconds on the clock.

Out of the 350 participants in the race, only 204 vehicles made it through the challenging track. The Colorado ZR2 that participated in the race was modified with an upgraded roll cage, racing body-mandated safety harness, a 44-gallon racing fuel tank, racing lights, a GPS system, and a two-way radio. The ZR2 was also equipped with upgraded Chevrolet performance features that will be announced at a later date.

“First and foremost, this was a development trip for our engineering team,” said Mark Dickens, executive director of Global Accessories, Performance Variants, Parts & Motorsports, General Motors, who was part of the chase and support team following the race from start to finish at all 14 pit stops.

“ZR2’s performance went beyond our most optimistic expectations, completing Vegas to Reno in its first outing. We learned a lot of things about the truck and could not be happier with the result, as well as the efforts of the Hall Racing team.

“The fact that the Colorado ZR2 was the only stock midsize truck to compete in Vegas to Reno reinforces our claim to be in a segment of one with this vehicle. Our success in this race is a testament to all that we’ve accomplished since the relaunch of our midsize truck program three years ago,” said Dickens. “We cannot wait to pass along the benefits of what we’ve learned here under extreme use and at future races to our customers.”
