Team DragonFire Wins Back-To-Back BITD Races Headed Into Most Important Race Of The Year…
CHANDLER, AZ – October 15, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – They say good things happen to good people and Lacrecia Beurrier is living proof of this. The DragonFire-backed Pro Unlimited UTV racer and co-driver Chris Moore made it back-to-back wins with this weekend’s Best In The Desert BlueWater Desert Challenge; an event that hosts multiple vehicle classes for UTV, Buggy, Jeep Speed and Trick Truck. However as great as this weekend was, with Lacrecia racing from last to first on day one of the two-day BlueWater race format and totally dominating day two, is the next really important race: the 10th Annual M.O.R.E Powder Puff Race Towards A Cure on November 21.
“Racing For The Cure is where it all started for me,” explains Lacrecia. “My very first race in my old Rhino was at the M.O.R.E Powder Puff Race and I have been proud to support the cause for the past decade!” She is out to honor the survival, determination and compassion of those fighting breast cancer. “My hot pink Polaris RZR and the Pink Ribbon is not something that was just slapped on the car for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are racing for a cure and breast cancer awareness every single time we take to the track.”
No question that it helps the cause when she is flying the colors from the top of the podium, as she did at The Mint 400 and both the Best In The Desert Vegas To Reno race back in August and again at the BlueWater Desert Challenge this past weekend. Making this victory even sweeter was the fact that this sweep broke a four-year streak of DNFs at the Desert Challenge. It also served as icing on the cake for Lacrecia’s 2015 BITD Pro Unlimited Championship season!
Lacrecia and her DragonFire/AZ West Polaris RZR took the line at 5:45 a.m. in darkness in the back of the pack for the largest Unlimited Pro Class of the season. Having already wrapped up the BITD points championship at Vegas To Reno the goal was simple… finish and have fun! Turns out Lacrecia is very fast when she is having fun since it didn’t take long for her to start passing cars. A bottleneck caused by an overturned competitor was narrowly avoided and it was clear sailing when the lead car failed to get out of the pits. Lacrecia pressed on with a sizeable lead. Despite losing a belt during a high speed paved section, co-driver Chris hopped out and had them back up and running before any car in any class was able to make a pass. The team set it on cruise control and headed to the finish line. While at the finish line and waiting to drive up on the podium, the Champ’s car sprung a fuel leak at a loose fitting. In true race car driver style, Lacrecia took off on foot to the podium eager to thank her sponsors for helping her get to the finish line once again in First Place.
This is known as the roughest day in racing after nearly 200 vehicles had chewed up the course the day before. Lacrecia and Chris agreed to set a slower pace and just finish… they were right on track to do so until they saw a green flag. The racer side of Lacrecia’s brain took over as she snagged the holeshot and was off flying once again. With absolutely no wind the team drove into a thick wall of dust. Despite extremely limited visibility, the dynamic duo picked off cars in other classes all the way to the finish line. When the dust settled, they were amazed to learn they finished 13th overall on the weekend and 1st in the Unlimited Pro UTV Class!
Lacrecia and co-driver Chris could not wait to jump into the lake and enjoy the rest of the races as spectators. Lacrecia looks forward to heading to the final round in Henderson, Nevada on December 4-6, 2015, on a track she knows and loves with the personal goal of a top ten overall finish. But first there will be a quick stop for the 10th Annual M.O.R.E Powder Puff Race Towards A Cure on November 21st that Lacrecia donates to every year. Although the finish points don’t matter at this race, we already know she is a winner when it comes to championing this worthy cause!

ABOUT LACRECIA BEURRIER
With three Mint 400 wins under her belt, 2015 Best In The Desert Pro Unlimited UTV champion Lacrecia Beurrier knows a thing or two about battling long odds. However she races for a greater cause — 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 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Racing For 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 Powder Puff 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. This year she stepped up to the Pro Unlimited Class… and promptly won The Mint 400 again! She is proud to have put her hot pink Polaris RZRs on the top of the podium for all three of 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. DragonFire, Polaris and AZ West are honored to have teamed up with Lacrecia’s Rockstar Custom Motorsports effort this season.
