The Mint 400, AKA “The Greatest American Off-Road Race” has been a pillar of American off-road racing for over 50. The Mint 400 is an epic four hundred mile battle of the top off-road racers in different classes of motorcycle, UTV’s, buggy and truck classes. This event kicks off in downtown Las Vegas with 2 days of tech and contingency where the general public gets to be up-close and personal with the racers, their vehicles as well as many big companies that help support the off-road industry.

The Mint 400 tech and contingency is a great way for us to meet one on one with our racers and develop some final strategies / perform final tuning adjustments to the racecars before the race.
