The Mint 400 EraThr3 Desert Warrior Award
EraThr3 joins The Mint 400 as presenter of The Mint 400 EraThr3 Desert Warrior Award
The Mint 400 is pleased to announce EraThr3 as the presenting sponsor of the “Desert Warrior Award” to the BITD competitor who overcomes the greatest odds to finish, win or simply survive while competing in the oldest and toughest desert racing series in America. Starting in 2016, the Desert Warrior Award recipient will be announced during The Mint 400 drivers meeting on Friday, March 11th at 7:00pm.
EraThr3 [Er-Uh-Three] represents a way of life: Independent from the start, and free to the end. The company was founded with a creative spirit, open mind and ridiculous pursuit of perfection with a common passion for things that go “bang”, break the speed limit, tear through the skies and otherwise defy physical limitations. It’s what started the madness and is the fuel that will drive EraThr3 into the future. Their mantra “Revel in the Pressure” combined with their passion for racing makes the Desert Warrior Award something the company is proud to be a part of and is intended to inspire every BITD competitor who may find themselves facing insurmountable odds, to overcome them and keep moving forward.
The EraThr3 Desert Warrior Award will be presented to the Best in the Desert racer who exemplifies the warrior spirit throughout the year as determined at discretion of the staff at EraThr3 and The Mint 400. After each race, one competitor who has battled to overcome particularly difficult odds just to compete will be selected and announced the week after the race. That individual will then be in the running for the Desert Warrior Award with the winner being presented with a coveted EraThr3 Stainless 16-inch Rifle during the drivers meeting at the following Mint 400.
The inaugural EraThr3 Desert Warrior Award will be awarded during the drivers meeting at the 2016 Mint 400 on Friday, March 11th 2016.
To be eligible for the Desert Warrior Award, a racer will need to be 18 years old, legally able to own a firearm and live in a state that allows that particular firearm to be legally be owned by the winner.
