Each class winner to take home custom Assault Industries Trophy

The Mint 400 announced today its partnership with Assault Industries to develop the official trophies of the 2019 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 powered by Monster Energy. Each class winner will take home a machined aluminum Mint 400 trophy custom built by Assault Industries.

“Marcelo and his team at Assault Industries absolutely crushed the last years trophies. This year they’re sticking with the same style but updating the color palate. These are the most badass trophies we’ve ever had and each class champion at The Mint 400 will be stoked to take one of these home from Las Vegas,” commented Mint 400 CEO, Matt Martelli.

The Mint 400 trophy concept is based on a bespoke three-piece design. The billet hat, the most important part of the trophy, is CNC machined from a solid chunk of billet aluminum. It was originally black anodized, then brought back to machines for post machining.

The base was created to hold the weight of the tower and billet top hat and the tower was laser cut, line grained, then formed to shape in 5052 aluminum. Pem nuts were then added to have few features bolted to it and small custom plates were welded at the bottom of these towers to attach to the base, sponsorship logos, the class and 1st place finish. The tower was kept aluminum and finished line grained with anodized accents. They kept the top hat Black with post machined highlights to showcase the Mint 400 logo.
