What do a dog food company and a micro brew have in common… and what does that have to do with DragonFire? Canidae and Tap It are the title sponsors for the Silver State 300 and Team DragonFire is ready to roll. Despite drawing a back of the pack starting position, Team DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am and UTV Pro 1000 class racer Lacrecia Beurrier are ready to show the boys how it’s done at the Best In The Desert race on May 2.
Lessons learned at The Mint 400 and some testing time should help cure the teething pains from last time out. As for the starting position, that should actually be a benefit. Lacrecia likes to start from the back of the pack and we know from The Mint that this car has the speed to catch-up and pass the guys in front of us.
Team DragonFire is on a roll when it comes to teaming up with the best in the business including Can-Am, RideNow, Bell, CP-Carrillo, Elka Suspension, Mothers and Royal Purple. Special shout out to ITP for both tires and wheels. "ITP hooked us up with Ultracross tires and their T9 beadlock rims," says Lacrecia. "They worked great at the Mint 400 and our shake down runs leading up to the Silver State 300."
Despite running a borrowed vehicle at the Parker 400 and the lack of testing time for the new Maverick at The Mint 400, Lacrecia is 8th overall in points headed into the Silver State 300. With a combined points total of 225, Lacrecia is just 9 points out of 3rd overall and 10 points out of second in the Best In The Desert championship standings. This proves we have a top 10 car, but we are pretty sure we have what it takes to finish on the podium.
