In off-road racing, suspension is everything. Team DragonFire has announced that the shocking pink trim of 2X Sportsman UTV Champ Lacrecia Beurrier’s Best in the Desert Pro 1000 UTV racer has been complemented by bright red Stage 5 shocks from Elka Suspension. The Team DragonFire/RideNow/Can-Am Maverick is now ready to tackle the toughest terrain in North America at the infamous Mint 400. Suspension was the missing link as Lacrecia looks for a third victory at The Mint 400.
“We are getting down to the wire here with this race car,” admits Lacrecia. “But we have our Stage 5 Elka shocks all dialed in and ready to go. I couldn’t be happier… They are sweet!” In keeping with Elka’s pro-level concept for everyone, pre-load, high- and low-speed compression and rebound adjustment clickers are built into the body of the shock, enabling anyone to set-up their suspension to suit their specific driving style and type of terrain — even The Mint 400.
A sneak peek at the new shocks in place has been leaked here:
“It shouldn’t be a surprise that we teamed up with Elka,” says DragonFire marketing guy-turned Mint 400 co-driver Chris Moore. “The real shock is why we took so long.” Moore says the Stage 5 shocks were well worth the wait. “They are fully adjustable and designed to deliver superior performance.” Working in conjunction with ITP’s massive 30 x 10 Ultra Cross tires, the Elka shocks should provide great ground clearance. Better yet, the built-in oversized reservoirs help dissipate heat, greatly reducing shock fade during the 400 mile torture test.
Elka Suspension joins a growing list of sponsors for Lacrecia’s Pro 1000 BITD campaign, including DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am, Bell, CP-Carillo, ITP, Mothers, Rockstar Customs and Royal Purple. For more info about The Mint 400, click on http://themint400.com
