2024 Mint 400 Off-Road Festival Takes Off-Road’s Best to Downtown Las Vegas

Tens of thousands of off-road racers, exhibitors, and enthusiasts descended upon Fremont Street East in downtown Las Vegas on Thursday for the return of the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival. The annual event serves as tech inspection and contingency for the Great American Off-Road Race, with more than 400 race entries making their way through some of the city’s most iconic sights to get ready for a full weekend of racing in Primm on Friday and Saturday.


“Every year, the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival just gets bigger and better,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “From the Mint 400 lifers who make a point of showing up every year to the kids who came out for the first time and are going to be fans for life now, there’s not much we do in this sport that’s cooler than this. We can’t thank all of our partners enough for making it such a badass display of the impact of off-road racing, and the city of Las Vegas and Fremont Street East for always allowing us to come in and transform a part of the city each year. Now it’s time to go racing—see you in Primm!”
