Over $800k in Cash and Prizes up for grabs at The 2016 Polaris RZR Mint 400 presented by BFGoodrich

The Mint 400 has raised over $800k in cash and prizes for racers and fans. The Martelli Brothers continue to build The Mint 400 into a global marquee event for racers and enthusiasts all over the world! The Best in the Desert off-road racing series also has the largest pool of cash and product prizes for racers, totaling nearly 3 million dollars for the six race series.

“The Mint 400 historically was the richest off-road race in the world and it has been our goal to restore that position. Since we have taken over ownership of this historic race, we have been increasing sponsorship activation and now have prizes exceeding $750,000,” stated Mint 400 COO Joshua Martelli. “This is our way of adding excitement and returning value back to the racers and fans. It’s important to us that the drivers feel the respect they deserve. Just coming to battle The Mint is a victory in itself.”
