ITP Backs Team DragonFire At The Mint 400
CHANDLER, AZ – February 28, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Just two weeks away from the toughest desert race in North America, all the high-rollers like Travis Pastrana and Bryce Menzies are looking to cash in on fame and fortune at The Mint 400. Add 2X Sportsman UTV Champ Lacrecia Beurrier to the list of top pros ready to tackle the challenge when the green flag drops on March 15. Team DragonFire’s Best in the Desert Pro 1000 UTV racer is on a roll when it comes to teaming up with the best in the business to support her quest for a third victory at the infamous Mint 400, and she is proud to partner with ITP for both tires and wheels.
“For 2014 ITP has hooked us up with their Ultra Cross tires and their new SD dual-beadlock rims,” says Lacrecia. “I cannot wait to go out and test them this weekend to see how they work.” The most critical component of any desert racer, Beurrier believes there is only one clear choice for tires and wheels in Side-X-Side racing: ITP.
Although she will be rolling on ITP’s massive 30 x 10 Ultra Cross tires, it is the bright pink beadlocks that will probably stand out even more visually. The pink trim on her Can-Am and pink beadlocks are to help support breast cancer awareness, something she has supported from day #1 of her racing career and were highlighted at the top of the podium in her two previous Mint 400 wins. “Supporting breast cancer research for a cure has always been the reason for racing,” she explains.
“ITP is an awesome company and we are super-excited to have them onboard,” concludes Lacrecia. However, you will have to wait until March 15, 2014 to see how Team DragonFire rolls at The Mint 400! In the interim, ITP joins a growing list of supporters, including DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am, Bell, CP-Carillo, Elka, ITP, Mothers, Muzzys, Rockstar Customs and Royal Purple.

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 as a registered nurse in Lake Havasu, Arizona. DragonFire, RideNow and Can-Am 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.
