380 race vehicles, thousands of crew members and even more fans lined the streets of Fremont today for the Odyssey Battery Mint 400 Tech & Contingency. “We take Fremont Street over” is one of the mottos of The Mint 400 and today showed that.
Bringing this sport to the masses is important to The Mint 400 and all day people who were just visiting Las Vegas for a vacation got a taste of our sport and its people. The vehicles going down Fremont Street aren’t like anything they’ve seen before and seeing them in person grabbed some new fans.
The Method Race Wheels Pit Crew Challenge lot was busy all day with vendors showing off their latest products, food trucks feeding thousands of people, the beer garden flowing all day, and our new VIP Lounge which featured Michelin star chef Drew Deckman feeding lucky participants.
Tomorrow is the big day. Racers will hang everything on the line to win the Polaris RZR Mint 400 Presented by BFGoodrich Tires and only a few lucky will be able to say they are a Mint 400 champion. Others will have to settle for just finishing and that along on this brutal course is a victory of its own.
Be sure to follow the race LIVE tomorrow with free tracking and leaderboard.
