Hercules Tires to Serve as Supporting Sponsor of 2020 Mint 400

Visit Hercules Tires at the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival in downtown Las Vegas!

Hercules Tires will serve as a supporting sponsor of the Mint 400 in 2020, race officials announced today. As part of the sponsorship, Hercules Tires will be on display as part of this year’s Mint 400 Off-Road Festival, the annual two-day celebration of all things off-road that brings tens of thousands of people to Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.

“We can’t wait to welcome Hercules Tires to the 2020 Mint 400,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “This year’s Mint 400 is shaping up to be another awesome event, and we’re grateful to have Hercules Tires on board as part of the ride. Be sure to visit them during this year’s Off-Road Festival!”

For over 60 years, Hercules has been quietly redefining value in the replacement tire industry by continually giving our customers the performance they demand, the choices they desire and the affordability they deserve. Hercules delivers it all with a unique combination of cutting-edge expertise and old-fashioned integrity. The result is a better, smarter, more convenient tire buying experience for today’s car, light truck and SUV drivers.

On the race course, Hercules Tires backs Double Lucky Racing, which will compete in the UTV Pro Turbo class of this year’s event. Driver Kyle Chavez and navigator Jesus Flores will race the #T805 Can-Am in this year’s Great American Off-Road Race.

The Mint 400 has held the title of the toughest, most spectacular off-road race in North America since 1968 when it was first run. Initially the race was a public relations event promoting the Mint Hotel’s annual deer hunt. but what started out as hotel promotion soon grew into a legitimate desert race. Bigger badder and better than ever since its 2008 revival, “The Great American Off-Road Race” is everything that is was and a whole lot more, and will run as an independently sanctioned event in 2020.

This year’s Mint 400 will take place from March 3-8 in Las Vegas. More information on the event for racers and spectators is available at TheMint400.com, or follow the event on Facebook and Instagram. For more information on Hercules Tires, visit www.herculestire.com.
