The Mint 400 announced today its new partnership with O’Reilly Auto Parts as the official sponsor of the Limited Race that takes place during The Great American Off-Road Race in Las Vegas, NV on Friday, December 3, 2021. O’Reilly Auto Parts is the premiere American auto parts retailer that provides automotive aftermarket parts, tools, supplies, equipment, and accessories in the United States serving both the professional service providers and do-it-yourself customers.
The new partnership focuses on the “garage” racers and teams who spend long hours meticulously working on their own race vehicles to get to the start line. To highlight their commitment to these racers, O’Reilly Auto Parts will award $10,000 cash contingency bonuses to five select classes who have a minimum of ten entries. These five classes will be announced once per day on The Mint 400 social media beginning Tuesday, August 24th.
“Off-road racing was born inside the garages of motorheads all over America, who wanted to race in the dirt long before there were purpose-built off-road race cars,” commented Mint 400 CEO, Matt Martelli. “That passion to get a vehicle to the start line by any means necessary has carried on to this day. We are very excited to welcome O’Reilly Auto Parts into The Mint 400 family to help us support these racers. The O’Reilly do-it-yourself mantra is a perfect fit for our industry, and we are thrilled that they are backing our limited classes with so much support.”
