In addition to Rugged Radios-focused custom content and an expanded presence in both the official Mint 400 live stream and TV show, one of the longest-standing opportunities for fans to interact with the world’s top off-road racers returns with the Ninth Annual Rugged Radios Driver Meet & Greet. As part of Rugged Radios’ sponsorship of the Great American Off-Road Race, Rugged-backed drivers will be on hand all day at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas to sign autographs and take pictures with tens of thousands of the sport’s biggest fans on Thursday, March 10.

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.
