Mobelwagen Wheels will serve as a supporting sponsor at the 2022 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400, event officials announced today. As part of the agreement, Mobelwagen’s line of air-cooled wheels for most vintage Volkswagens as well as their newly launched Class 11 cast race wheels will be on display in downtown Las Vegas as part of the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Fremont Street on Thursday, March 10, and the brand will also have a presence in Primm at the start-finish line on Friday and Saturday’s race days.
“Mobelwagen is a relative ‘new kid on the block’ with regards to off road racing as their newly launched MWR430 Interceptor race wheel is taking the Class 11s by storm. Many of the top Class 11 competitors at this year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 have chosen to make the switch to the Interceptors due to its ability to be able to take anything the desert can dish out,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “We’re looking forward to welcoming them to the Great American Off-Road Race for 2022, starting with an appearance at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival in downtown Las Vegas, as well as extend our partnership in the future.”

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.
