Brief History
The Gallardo’s (pronounced guy-yard-o), have always lived in Las Cruces and have been in and around racing for many years, but Fito didn’t actually sit behind the wheel of his first race car until he was 33 years old in 2000. Fito’s brother Rick raced, and still does today, and in 2000 Fito and Rick’s friend Alex bought a Street Stock car and asked Fito to drive it, but since Rick had more experience, he took to the driver’s seat first and after a few nights Fito got his chance to race it, and all it took was one night and he was hooked. He competed in the car for the remainder of the year, finishing tenth in the track point standings at his home track – the Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces. The following year the team competed again in the same division with modest results before Fito went on to win back to back track championships in 2002 and 2003, which lead to his vault upward into the open wheel Modified division beginning in 2004.
