Primm, Nevada (July 9, 2015) — This Sunday, a 2-hour TV special on The Polaris RZR Mint 400, the toughest off-road race in America, will air on NBC as part of the Red Bull Signature Series at 2:30pm EST/11:30am PST. Each year, the bright lights and sounds of the world famous Las Vegas Strip are temporarily drowned out by the roar of 850 horsepower trucks roaring across the desert at speeds nearing 140 miles per hour. From bone jarring terrain to high speed passes, exasperating equipment failure to spectacular rollovers, The Mint 400 is the premiere American off-road race that draws fans of all ages, celebrities and the top drivers in the world.
They say the third time is a charm… and in the case of DragonFire-sponsored Pro Unlimited UTV pilot Lacrecia Beurrier this is certainly true. She beat the odds in Las Vegas and won the legendary Mint 400 this past weekend! Since the inaugural event back in 1967, the 400-mile race through the Nevada desert has earned its reputation for being the toughest off-road race in North America. In fact, last year Lacrecia was lucky to even finish, but this year she hit the jackpot at The Mint!
“What a race!” Starkey said on the podium. “This is the second time we’ve run the mint, but the first time we’ve won it. We started out in third and got out in front, so we only had to worry about someone catching up. It was unbelievable. The course was great…real fast…getting a little chewed up. It couldn’t be better.”
UTVs and other limited classes were still on the course when Starkey crossed the finish line. Starkey thanked his team and race organizers and reported his car had no flats and the engine was flawless.
