The 2019 Mint 400 Desert Clean-Up

The Mint 400 has announced its second annual industry wide desert clean-up event Saturday, March 2nd in Jean, Nevada beginning at 10:00AM.

In 2017, Republic Services partnered with the Mint 400 for their inaugural “Dash For Trash” event.  Volunteers removed 14.54 tons of waste from the Nevada desert in the Jean area, but the team identified more work to be done.  The following year, 22.06 tons (44,120 lbs) of trash was was removed from our beautiful desert.  This March the group hopes to double those effort.  The Mint 400 Desert Clean-Up will be focused around the Jean OHV area – land that is not only used for The Mint 400 race course, but also for numerous races throughout the year spanning multiple off-road organizations. The Mint 400would like to invite all off-road enthusiasts and members of the Las Vegas community to spend a day in the dirt, cleaning up our race course and OHV areas.

Participants at the clean up will receive an official limited edition Mint 400 and automatically be entered into a massive industry raffle that will include thousands of dollars in donated off-road parts, accessories and swag from industry leading companies. Additional raffle tickets will be for sale onsite and all proceeds will go towards the cleanup costs.

Participants are asked to bring their own drinks and snacks, plenty of warm clothes, sunscreen, and work gloves to protect your hands. You will not need an off-road vehicle to access the clean-up sites.  Thank you in advance for your support!
