Come watch the top off-road pit crews battle head to head to see whose team fastest in the pits!
The Mint 400 announced the return of the Pit Crew Challenge, this year with new title sponsor Method Race Wheels. This year marks the fifth consecutive year The Mint 400 will host the ultimate single-elimination pit crew challenge contest in front of a crowd of thousands of off-road enthusiasts and race team members.
The showdown will be held at the “Method Race Wheels Pit Crew Lot” on 9th & Fremont St. The event is free, open to the public and will be held Thursday, March 10th at 7:30pm, right after the crowning of the new 2016 Miss Mint 400!
The Trick Truck (1400) and Class 1 (1500) overall prize features a stunning custom floor jack trophy hand painted by Kelly and Sons Crazy Painters.
The Method Race Wheels Mint 400 Pit Crew Challenge is a celebration of the dedicated mechanics, volunteers, and pit captains that spend countless hours prepping, maintaining and fixing off-road race vehicles before, during, and after they compete.
As the margin between first and second overall winner at The Mint 400 becomes more and more narrow each year, the difference between a victory and second place undoubtedly comes down to the speed of a pit stop during the epic race!
This year’s Method Race Wheels Pit Crew Challenge will feature the top teams on Trick Truck (1400) and Class 1 (1500) including:
Additional prizes for each of the Trick Truck (1400) and Class 1 (1500) winners include a fresh set of Method Wheels, a set of BFGoodrich Tires, FOX 2.0 Performance Series Smooth Body IFP shocks, Speed Strap Tie Downs and more!
