Lacrecia Looking For A Three-Peat
Third time is a charm, as they say. After teaming up with Lacrecia Beurrier to take the Sportsman Trophy twice at the Mint 400, Team DragonFire is ready to go pro! That's right, we are returning to America's Toughest Off-Road Race. As the defending Sportsman class champ, Lacrecia was looking to really make a statement this year by upping her game to run the Best In The Desert Pro 1000 class this year.
"We're back with a brand new beast," she says. The new challenge called for an all-new car, so Lacrecia parked her old Polaris and enters this year's event with a new Can-Am/DragonFire/RideNow ride. "I didn't want to spoil the surprise, but Chris may have let the cat… er, Can-Am out of the bag." DragonFire Social Media Marketing Manager and co-driver Chris Moore is producing a series of video sneak peeks, the first of which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MvImsqwtOQ
Chris is chronicling the new rig's progress from bare bones to race winner in a series of exclusive snippets. "You can follow along or wait until March 14, 2014 when the wraps come off," he claims. Thanks to a growing list of supporters such as Bell, Can-Am, Elka, ITP, Lonestar, Mother's, RideNow, Rockstar Customs and Royal Purple, DragonFire and Lacrecia are looking forward to conquering the Mint 400… again!
This two-time Mint 400 winner races for a reason — she is out to honor the survival, determination and compassion of those fighting breast cancer. The pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness is not something Lacrecia just slapped on the car last October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Racing to support the cure is where it all started for me,” she says. “My first race in my old Rhino was a charity event to raise money for the program.” Lacrecia quickly went from charity events and powderpuff racing to the real deal, competing in what is billed as America’s toughest off-road race, the Mint 400! Not only did she finish the race, she won the Sportsman UTV class first time out and then came back to successfully defend her title… proudly running the ribbon and pink trim for both her Mint 400 wins. She is a true champion, on and off track — when she is not ripping it up on the race course, Lacrecia’s “real” job is a registered nurse in Lake Havasu, Arizona. DragonFire, Can-Am and RideNow are honored to have teamed up with Lacrecia’s Rockstar Custom Motorsports effort this season.
