With $100,000 on the line, the UTV World Championship set to take place February 19 – 21, is drawing all the heavy hitters to Laughlin, Nevada, hoping to strike it rich. It also affords DragonFire-sponsored racer Lacrecia Beurrier a chance to pull out all the stops, literally.
Buerrier, the former Mint 400 Sportsman Class winner is removing the restrictions and moving up to the Unlimited Pro UTV Class starting with the UTV World Championship and continuing through the 2015 Best In The Desert series. “We wanted to make a real statement,” says Lacrecia of her move up to an unlimited machine.
“Where better than the UTV World Championship to step things up? My Polaris RZR-based racer was already plenty fast, but the CP-Carrillo big bore kit makes this car a real fire breather,” she adds. Lacrecia is going to need the extra horsepower to compete with the anything goes — including aftermarket superchargers and high-performance motorcycle engines — Unlimited Class.
A brand new addition to the off-road racing schedule, the event actually features two world class UTV races in one: a Best In The Desert Championship points race, and a short course Production UTV Championship race. In addition to the $100,000 purse, Polaris RZR will be awarding the winner of both races a new Polaris RZR XP1000.
“This event was created with two goals in mind,” explains UTVUnderground.com CEO “Joey D.” DiGiovanni. “Number one was to give the sport an event that we could be proud of and claim as our own. Number two was to give the racers an event where they were treated as the pros that they are.”
