Join the The Mint 400 team by volunteering for one of our key positions for both the events leading up to the race and on race day!
The Great American Off-Road Race™ expects to utilize over 100 volunteers in support of the 2020 event, including race week activities like the two-day off-road festival on downtown Fremont Street East, and the two days of intense racing action in the Nevada desert on Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th. The new Mint 400 volunteer program will improve communication and streamline overall operations prior to, during, and after the event and races. Mint 400 staff will recognize each person’s experience, and carefully track the number of hours and days they volunteer.
The program will be managed by 21-year military veteran and Mint 400 racer/class winner Jason Prichard to serve as the Mint 400 Race Operations Manager. Jason will be responsible for overseeing the volunteer crew, and ensuring that race day course logistics run smoothly.
All volunteers will receive a commemorative 2020 decanter, event t-shirt, and a volunteer specific package, as well as an exclusive post-event brunch after the 2020 race is complete.
The Mint 400 formally invites all current and previous Mint 400 volunteers to return to Las Vegas March 3rd-8th, next year to contribute to both event operations and race operations.
There are two ways to volunteer for The Mint 400:
1. MINT 400 RACE OPERATIONS
There are four main categories of Mint 400 Race Operations. All three are equally important to the success on race day.
- Pit Captains: Oversee all pit operations and volunteer staff for assigned pit. Ensure all pit procedures are being followed. Conduct morale checks on pit volunteer staff, rotate positions as necessary. Conduct periodic “pit walk throughs” to ensure pit crews are following safety procedures.
- Stop Checks: Flag race traffic to ensure that each vehicle comes to a complete stop before entering pits. Monitor for compliance and report infractions to race officials.
- Road Crossing Flaggers: Monitor race traffic at paved road crossings. Ensure safety of race and non race vehicles by controlling traffic flow. Ensure all non race vehicles are stopped and held as necessary until the race course is clear to safely cross.
- No Stop Checkpoint/Timekeepers: Monitor race traffic at various course locations (course intersections, 90 degree turns, etc). Track vehicle times through the position and report information to race operations as necessary.
