On any average Tuesday in Las Vegas the sound that fills the Las Vegas Blvd strip are the sounds of tourists walking down the street, taxi cabs, and street performers sitting on curbs looking to make a few bucks. Today however was not your average day in Las Vegas.
The 2016 Polaris RZR Mint 400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires has officially begun today after tens of thousands of horsepower screamed off the walls of some of the most iconic hotels in Las Vegas in the 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Vehicle Parade. Millions of dollars of offroad engineering caught the attention of tourists throughout the 10 mile trek down Las Vegas Blvd.
Led by 2016 Mint 400 Grand Marshall Rod Hall in his legendary ‘69 Ford Bronco built by Bill Stroppe, racers started from the TaylorMade Golf Experience just south of the strip and ended where all the Mint 400 pre-race festivities go down along Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. Unique to any other offroad race in the world, The Mint 400 gives racers the chance to drive their vehicles down arguably one of the most famous streets in the United States.
The Mint 400 is only getting started with a full week of festivities planned before being headlined by The Great American Off-Road Race on Saturday March 13th. For a full schedule of actives please visit our schedule of events.
