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 hotel promotion soon grew into a legitimate desert race. Bigger badder and better than ever since its 2008 revival, “The Great American Off-Road Race” is everything that is was and a whole lot more, and will run as an independently sanctioned event in 2020.
This year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 will take place from March 3-8 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. For more information on NGK Spark Plugs, visit NGKSparkPlugs.com.
