No doubt, if you are a client at Moonlight Beach Dental, you know Lani. But, you might not know that Lani is an off-road race driver. And she’s GOOD at it!
Lani’s been racing for 4 years. For the first 3 years, she raced only once a year in the MORE (Mohave Off-Road Racing Enthusiasts) Powder Puff Race, an all-women’s race supporting breast cancer awareness, hosted once a year in October.
She placed 4th place in her first year, 6th on her second, and 4th on her third. Unfortunately, a mechanical failure caused her to not finish in 2016 – just 5 miles before the finish line in 2nd place.
2017 marks a new year in a new, more competitive class for Lani; class 1300 (limited sportsman). This class is composed of men and women (roughly a 50/50 split between men/women) under the SNORE (Southern Nevada Off-Road Racing Enthusiasts) organization. This requires the race car to be a full tubular chasis with aluminum body panels, of early model VW type suspension, drivetrain and motor.
This year, Lani will be running the entire 6-race SNORE series (less 1 race) under number 1325.
So far, the 2017 season has been AWESOME! On February 11th and 12th, Lani raced in the infamous SNORE Battle at Primm in Primm, NV earning a respectable 3rd place finish.
June 10, 2017 marked the 3rd race in the 2017 season in Caliente, NV called the SNORE Knotty Pine 250. This was a 250-mile race that Lani and her husband, Eric, co-drove. It took 5 hours and 21 minutes to earn a very respectable 2nd place finish!
Moonlight Beach Dental has graciously jumped on board as a Fuel Sponsor for the HOLD FAST 1325 car! With this support, car 1325 will continue to be fueled for success for the remainder of the 2017 season!
Lani’s determination, persistence and professionalism behind the wheel directly transfers over to her work ethic at Moonlight Beach Dental. She’s always willing to get the job done, no matter what the cost.
