History

2016

Pollo Loco was the first ever winner of an official race of the Sand Marble Rally. They competed in Sand Marble Rally 2016, podiuming three times and finishing in 8th overall.

2017

Pollo Loco competed in Sand Marble Rally 2017. They podiumed twice but could only manage an 11th place finish overall.

2018

Pollo Loco missed out on Sand Marble Rally 2018 after placing sixth in their qualifier, 0.15 seconds behind Nemo in fourth. This made them realize they needed to make some life changes so Pollo Loco decided to become a vegan. This led to them being more confident about their nutrition and more appreciative of the world, as well as allowing them to slim down and become more nimble.[1] After missing the main tournament they competed in the Sand Marble Rally 2018 B-League where they finished second tied with champion H2 Blue, only losing out due to having one fewer gold medals.

2019

Second place in the Sand Marble Rally 2018 B-League saw Pollo Loco automatically qualified for Marble Rally 2019, in which they finished in 7th place in the overall standings after recovering from two back-to-back DNF's in races 3 and 4. Out of the 6 races in which they did finish, Pollo Loco never finished below 9th place, marking a good season to establish themselves back in the top league. They made a very impressive move in Race 6 when they dived and overtook 10 marbles to take the lead.

2020

Pollo Loco was invited to compete in Marble Rally 2020 after the cancellation of the Qualifiers.
