The Road to The Mint 400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires​: Todd Jackson

Friday, February 24, 2017

Growing up in Southern California, Todd Jackson started riding and racing motocross bikes at a young age but after a serious crash it was either give up racing on bikes or get into a caged vehicle. Rather than give up on his his love of off-road racing, Todd rented a Trophy-Lite truck and came out with a win at his very first race at The Best in The Desert Parker 425. After that initial success, Todd was hooked.  He purchased his own truck and began racing The Best in The Desert series. The Trophy-Lite class is an ultra competitive spec class where all the vehicles are identical so the focus is on driver skill rather than who has the biggest budget. This allows the average person to get behind the wheel and try their hand at off-road racing. Todd achieved the highlight of his three year racing career last year when he won his class at The Mint 400. The thrill of competition and the challenge of winning The Mint a second time have lured Todd back to the most inhospitable desert in North America. Come see Todd Jackson and the rest of the Trophy-lite racers go door to door at the 2017 Polaris RZR Mint 400, presented by BFGoodrich Tires March 1st – 5th in Sin City Las Vegas!
