Things Heating Up for DragonFire’s Return to Mint 400 0
To be the best, you have to beat the best! DragonFire is elated to announce we are returning to “America’s Toughest Off-Road Race” — the infamous Mint 400 — with long-time sponsored driver Lacrecia Beurrier. The Mint 400 has held the title of being the toughest, most spectacular off-road race in North America since its first running back in 1967 and this year promises to be even tougher and more spectacular, according to the organizers. This is just the sort of challenge DragonFire and Lacrecia were looking for.
After winning the Sportsman title twice, Lacrecia was looking to really make a statement this year by upping her game to the run the Best In The Desert Pro 1000 class this year. “We’re back with a brand new beast,” Lacrecia says. The new challenge called for an all-new car as the defending Mint 400 sportsman champ has parked her old Polaris and enters this year’s event with a new Can-Am ride. “I could tell you more, but that would spoil the surprise,” she adds. However, a series of video sneak peeks have been leaked by co-driver and DragonFire Social Media Marketing Manager, Chris Moore. “Oops, my bad… don’t look at this link, please!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MvImsqwtOQ
Actually Moore is chronicling the new rig’s progress from bare bones to race winner in a series of snippets. “You can follow along or wait until March 14, 2014 when the wraps come off! Thanks to a growing list of supporters such as DragonFire, Can-Am, RideNow, Bell, Elka, ITP, Lonestar, Mother’s, Rockstar Customs and Royal Purple, DragonFire and Lacrecia are looking forward to conquering the Mint 400… again!

ABOUT LACRECIA BEURRIER:
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. See http://rockstarcustomz.com for details on Lacrecia Beurrier’s program.
