Based in Medina, Minnesota, Polaris has been manufacturing vehicles for nearly 60 years and is the preferred UTV platform for desert off-road racing.

“We are thrilled to have Polaris as the presenting sponsor for the 2013 Mint 400,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “The UTV Class has exploded in growth over the past few years because they are affordable to campaign and virtually race-ready from the showroom floor. You can literally go buy a Polaris RZR from a dealer – and with a few modifications be out racing the next weekend! It’s really exciting to watch people get into these vehicles and then become die-hard off-road race fans!”

“Polaris is honored to be the presenting sponsor of a race as legendary as The Mint 400,” said Craig Scanlon, general manager, Recreational Off-Road Vehicles for Polaris. “The Mint has a rich history that puts off-road racing right in the heart of Las Vegas. From racers and celebrities tackling the brutal Nevada desert to the festivities surrounding the race, such as a pre-race display on Fremont St., The Mint is a celebration of off-road racing and Polaris is excited to be part of it.”

To help capitalize on the newly-formed partnership with Polaris, The Mint 400 has named UTV Underground.com as the official Mint 400 UTV Class media outlet. They will provide daily updates of the Mint 400 UTV festivities and racing, including expansive coverage of all Polaris racing teams. Photo galleries and articles, as well as post-race video clips will be shared with UTV enthusiasts across The Mint 400 and UTV Underground social media networks.
