Vision Wheel will return to the 2022 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 as a supporting sponsor of the Great American Off-Road Race, Mint 400 officials announced today. As part of the sponsorship, Vision Wheel will be on hand at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas on Thursday, March 10, before joining the racing action at the start-finish line in Primm on Friday and Saturday.
“Between commitments to some of the sport’s top drivers and events like the Mint 400, Vision Wheel makes one of the most significant commitments we see in off-road racing,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “We’re beyond excited to welcome them back to this year’s Great American Off-Road Race and continue a long-standing relationship with them as one of our supporting partners. Be sure to check out Vision’s latest line of wheels at both the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival on Fremont Street and with us in Primm on race days!”
Vision Wheel will once again support an extensive roster of athletes, led by new team additions Wayne and Kristen Matlock, in the 2022 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400. Both Matlocks will be competing in the new UTV PR-100 division in the Polaris RZR Pro R. The full slate of Vision-backed drivers on this year’s entry list, including the entire TrophyLite class and numerous additional entries, will compete across both days of racing in Primm.

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.
