Method Race Wheels will return to the 2022 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 as the title sponsor of Method Race Wheels Qualifying, Mint 400 officials announced today. Featuring the top Unlimited Truck, Unlimited Truck Spec, Legends, Class 1, and Class 10 entries in the Great American Off-Road Race, Method Race Wheels Qualifying will take place on Friday, March 11 as part of the first day of competition in Primm, and will set the starting order for those classes in Saturday’s Unlimited class races. Method Race Wheels will also be on hand at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.
“We’re excited to welcome the return of Method Race Wheels as the sponsor of Qualifying for the 2022 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “Method Race Wheels Qualifying is our first glimpse at which Unlimited racers have the speed to make an impression at the Mint 400 every year, and with competitive fields in every class, your time trial results are more important than ever to finding race success. Be sure to check out the Method booth at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival to check out their latest off-road wheels, and join us in Primm to see the top racers take on the challenge of Method Race Wheels Qualifying!”
While qualifying has always been an important part of the BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 driving experience for the racers, time trials have taken on a new level of prominence for the fans in recent years. Instead of being conducted at a different site from the race itself and with limited spectators on hand, Mint 400 organizers elected to bring the session to the fans in Primm in 2021, with Unlimited racers running a qualifying course while the Limited classes competed on a different loop. Method Race Wheels Qualifying will return to this format in 2022, meaning that Friday attendees will have the opportunity to see nearly all of this year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 entries in action.
As always, Method Race Wheels will back an extensive list of athletes in this year’s Great American Off-Road Race, including Hailie Deegan as she makes her return to off-road and Mint 400 debut. Before taking on the Unlimited Truck Spec class, Deegan will be on site at the Method Race Wheels booth at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Thursday, March 10 at 1PM for a public meet-and-greet and autograph signing session.

The Mint 400 has held the title of the toughest, most spectacular off-road race in North America since 1968 when it was first run. Initially, the race was a public relations event promoting the Mint Hotel’s annual deer hunt. but what started out as a hotel promotion soon grew into a legitimate desert race. Since its 2008 revival, “The Great American Off-Road Race” has only gotten bigger and more prestigious, and deeper fields every year only make it tougher to win.
This year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 will take place from March 9-13 in Las Vegas. More information on the event for racers and spectators is available at TheMint400.com, or follow the event on Facebook and Instagram.
