The team received more than 500 submissions in the naming contest, and after more than a week of voting, Dusty got the most support.

The Roadrunners first game is Friday October 28, 2016, at 7:05 p.m. The Roadrunners will face the Stockton Heat.  Tickets are still available online and at the Tucson Convention Center Arena. All fans in attendance will receive a commemorative ticket for attending the team's first game in Tucson.
