Team DragonFire's Best in the Desert Pro 1000 UTV Driver Lacrecia Beurrier is stoked to announce that the world-famous Royal Purple is on board for the 2014 Best In The Desert race season! With The Mint 400 right around the corner, the entire team has been hard at work prepping her DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am Maverick for what is known as the toughest race in North America. Since its first running back in 1967, The Mint has developed a well-deserved reputation for destroying cars and defeating drivers — exactly the sort of challenge Lacrecia is looking for… and the ideal proving grounds for Royal Purple's products.


Facing the challenge of hours of the nastiest terrain in the world, it’s good to know we have the best oil, grease, lubricants and maybe most importantly for a desert race, coolant in the world helping us make it to finish! Thanks to Royal Purple for greasing the skids to help Lacrecia win her third Mint 400 title! Unlike some companies that focus on fuel and other petroleum byproducts, Royal Purple’s sole mission is to develop products that significantly outperform synthetic and mineral-based oils. This philosophy established by Royal Purple's founder John Williams continues to this day. A team of formulators with more than 200 years of combined expertise at extracting maximum performance ensures the products are the best in the business. "It is like they say, Royal Purple is the performance that outperforms," says 2X Mint 400 winner Lacrecia. "And I need the best I can get!" She is a big fan of the brand, going back to her very first Powder Puff race and says, "I think I still have the old Royal Purple stickers from that first race."


She enters this year's Mint 400 with a new Can-Am Maverick that should be topped off with fluids and fired up for the very first time this weekend. "Royal Purple will be the life's blood of the new Can-Am," explains the registered nurse-turned racer. "From the XPS Semi Synthetic 10w 40 oil in the engine to the 75–140 Synthetic Gear Oil in the front differential and transmission to the 75-90 Synthetic Gear Oil in the rear diff, radiator coolant and CV Grease, Royal Purple is flowing through the Rockstar Customs' Can-Am with the pink trim."


The pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness is not something Lacrecia just slapped on the car last October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. "I have always run the Breast Cancer Awareness pink trim on all my racers," explains Lacrecia. "I think Royal Purple is a very complimentary color!" You will have to wait until March 14, 2014 to see how the color palette works at The Mint 400! In the interim, thanks go to a growing list of supporters, including DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am, Bell, Elka, ITP, Lonestar, Mother's, Rockstar Customs and now, Royal Purple.
