The Mint 400 announced today that AMSOIL will return to this year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 and serve as title sponsor of the AMSOIL Pit Crew Challenge. The AMSOIL Pit Crew Challenge will see pit crews from the top teams in desert racing battle it out for prizes and bragging rights on The Mint 400 Main Stage on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas on the evening of Thursday, March 5.

“We’re excited to welcome back AMSOIL to The Mint 400 family as the new title sponsor of this year’s AMSOIL Pit Crew Challenge,” said Mint 400 CEO, Matt Martelli. “Thursday night’s the night. We have some exciting events lined out this year. The Pit Crew Challenge is always one of the most exciting events leading up to the race itself, and we’re grateful to have AMSOIL’s support. We hope everyone has a chance to stop by the AMSOIL booth on Fremont Street as part of this year’s Off-Road Festival!”

Many Mint 400 racers will rely on AMSOIL’s synthetic lubricants to get them to the finish line on race day. Two-time Mint 400 Overall Champion Bryce Menzies will compete in the Unlimited Truck Class in the #7 AWD and Brad Lovell will pilot the #6138 AMSOIL Truck. Both Menzies Motorsports and Lovell Racing’s pit crews will compete in the challenge Thursday night.

As the margin between first and second place becomes smaller and smaller, pitting is one of the most important strategies in off-road racing. The AMSOIL Mint 400 Pit Crew Challenge is a celebration of the dedicated pit crews that spend countless hours prepping, maintaining and fixing off-road race vehicles before, during, and after they compete.
