PASO ROBLES, CA – March 12, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Lazer Star Lights sponsored racers are rolling into Las Vegas, NV this week in preparation for the Best in the Desert Mint 400. Known as “The Great American Off-Road Race,” the Mint 400 will put Lazer Star sponsored race teams up against some of the best off road competition in the world as participants take on this challenging desert course.
Lazer Star Lights is proud to announce the renewal of several partnerships for the 2015 race season. Matt Lovell of Matt Lovell Racing and Dana Nicholson of Fleshgear/Fuel Off Road will represent Lazer Star in the trophy truck classes, while Jason and Derek Murray of Murray Racing and Bryan Buckhannon of Buckhannon Racing will compete in the UTV Pro class.
Mall Lovell will be representing Lazer Star Lights in the 7200 mid-size trophy truck class in BITD and select SNORE races in 2015.
About Matt Lovell Racing
Matt Lovell returns as Lazer Star’s flagship racer in 2015, set to compete in the Lazer Star Lights / Matt Lovell Racing #7244 mid-size trophy truck. Though they faced much difficulty in several 2014 events, Matt and crew continued to work hard and made several necessary adjustments towards the end of the year that helped them earn a second place class finish in the Best in the Desert “Henderson 250” and season-ending victory at the SNORE “Rage at the River.” Lovell looks to carry that momentum over to 2015 as he takes on the competition in Best in the Desert and select SNORE races.
Dana Nicholson will race his Lazer Star equipped Toyota trophy truck in BITD and Lucas Oil races this year.
About Fleshgear / Fuel Off Road
Dana Nicholson has already accomplished plenty in the off road industry, but he’s not resting on his laurels. The co-producer and founder of Fleshwound Films’ Crusty Demons of Dirt video series and Fleshgear apparel company, Nicholson recently turned his attention to four wheels. Nicholson has raced in BITD and Lucas Oil events, so be on the lookout in 2015 for some updates from the Crusty Demon himself.
Jason and Derek Murray will represent Lazer Star in BITD and SCORE UTV races.
About Murray Racing
The Murray Brothers are well-known in the world of UTV racing for their tenacity and competitiveness. Derek and Jason work hard to prepare for Best in the Desert and SCORE events, and as a result set high expectations for themselves. This winner’s mentality paid off several times in 2014, as Murray Racing took the checkers in the SCORE Imperial Valley 250. The victory, in addition to several other strong finishes including 2nd in the San Felipe 250, earned the Murray Brothers 4th place overall in the 2014 SCORE UTV Class Championship. Murray Racing also finished 3rd overall in the 2014 BITD UTV Pro Championship. Their mission will be no different in 2015: win races and win championships. Their new turbocharged Can-Am Maverick X ds should help with that.
Bryan Buckhannon will represent Lazer Star in GNCC and BITD events this year as the GNCC champ shifts his focus to UTV racing.
About Bryan Buckhannon
Bryan Buckhannon has been a fixture in GNCC Racing since the mid-2000s, and since his first class championship in 2008 has dominated the 4×4 ATV competition. In total, Buckhannon has claimed six 4×4 Open championships, highlighted by his perfect season of 13 consecutive victories in 2013. In 2014, Buckhannon also ventured into UTV racing, participating in GNCC and select BITD events. Bryan is a pure competitor, and we look forward to seeing what this champion will do in 2015.
