Oakley will be awarding Bombs in three new classes, as well as watches to the Unlimited Champion, Limited Champion and Fastest Qualifier.

In 2012, the first ever Oakley Bomb Run Award in Desert Off-Road Racing was given out at the General Tire Mint 400 to the racers clocking the fastest lap at the The Great American Off-Road Race. This year, Oakley is continuing their support of Desert Racing and The General Tire Mint Mint 400 presented by Polaris by giving Oakley Bomb Run Awards to three new classes!

Mint 400 Oakley Bomb Awards

Drivers in three different classes will take home a heavy duty “bomb” trophy of their own to commemorate their scorching lap time.
The Oakley Bomb Run Award has traditionally been given out to short course off-road racers however Oakley is exciting to allow the Desert drivers a chance to test their mettle and show what they can do over challenging terrain of the 2013 Mint 400 course. Oakley Bomb Run Awards will be presented to the driver and co-driver achieving the fastest lap in the 7200, 2000 and 1000 classes.

Oakley earned its heritage by taking performance beyond the boundaries of possibility, crossing the line between reason and sanity to achieve the ultimate. Victory in off-road racing demands the same dedication and defiance of limits, and the Oakley Watch Division is proud to be the Official Timekeeper of the Mint 400.

The Mint 400 is a race with the octane of adrenalin, a full-throttle assault on the senses that defies sanity as it challenges the limits of possibility. That same fanaticism for obliterating limits is what led mad science to combine titanium, carbon fiber and stainless steel with the precision of Swiss watchmaking. Like the racers in the Mint 400, we torque technology for performance worthy of life at full throttle.
