THE MINT 400

March 09, 2015

Team DragonFire Looking For Another Win At America's Toughest Off-Road Race

 

Never bet on a sure thing? Although the odds are usually against players beating the house in Las Vegas, DragonFire is betting on a podium finish at The Mint 400 on March 14th. Pro Racer Lacrecia Beurrier is on a roll after finishing third at the inaugural UTV World Championship… and she has a history hitting the jackpot at The Mint. 

She won The Mint 400 twice in the Sportsman Class, but this year Lacrecia is stepping up for The Mint 400 this year, literally. The recent UTV World Championship was the first time Lacrecia had competed in the Unlimited UTV Pro Class. Taking third in a Polaris XP 1000 that didn't get finished until the night before the World Championship in Laughlin is a testament to both Lacrecia's talent and Rockstar Racing's car building prowess.

Run by her husband/crew chief Eric Beurrier, Lake Havasu-based Rockstar built her previous Mint 400 winners, so they know what it takes to win the toughest race in America. "How much is too much? We are gambling between unlimited horsepower and building a car that will hold together for 400 miles at race pace, says Lacrecia. "Finishing on the podium first time out was just what the doctor ordered," says the ER nurse-turned Pro UTV racer. "I'm betting Eric stacked the deck in our favor for The Mint 400, too."

Since the inaugural event back in 1967, the 400-mile race through the Nevada desert has earned its reputation for being the toughest off-road race in North America. Last year Lacrecia was lucky to even finish, but this year she definitely has her swagger back!  "Bring it on, the tougher, the better!"

If you are headed out to Las Vegas for the race, plan on getting there early. At 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11th, Lacrecia will be part of the race vehicle procession that starts at South Point Casino and parades all the way to Fremont Street. The Mint 400 kickoff party starts at 4 p.m. at 10th and Fremont, followed by the Mint 400 Pit Crew Challenge Qualifying at 5 p.m. In addition to seeing Lacrecia's hot pink Polaris RZR in the procession, fans can get her autograph and some DragonFire swag at the Rugged Radios Meet & Greet at 4:30 p.m. on March 12th or at tech and contingency on Friday the 13th.

 

Thanks to all of Lacrecia's sponsors for helping her get back on the podium, including DragonFire, AZ West, Polaris Industries, Bell, BS Sand, Bulldog LED lights, CP-Carrillo, Dalton Industries, Elka, Gates, ITP, Lonestar Racing, Monster Seal, Mothers, Muzzy's, Raceline Wheels, Rockstar Customs, Royal Purple and Rugged Radios.
