The Mint 400 announced today that El Cortez Hotel & Casino is the official destination for Mint 400 Decanters at this year’s event. Mint 400 Decanters will be sold at all El Cortez bars during the Off-Road Festival on Thursday, March 5th and Friday, March 6th and El Cortez will be the official pick-up destination for fans who pre-purchased decanters filled with City Lights Shine, as well as registered racers after Driver Registration.

The 2020 Mint 400 Decanter is filled with City Lights Shine Whiskey Moonshine and pays respect to the three time and 2019 Overall Champion Justin Lofton on the front, and includes every two and four wheel Mint 400 Overall Champion since the inaugural 1968 race on the side. Each banded racer will receive a bottle as part of their entry, leaving a very limited amount for sale to the general public.

The 2020 decanter is a piece of art. Commemorative “Jim Beam” Whiskey decanters were produced from 1970-1976 as a means of celebrating the annual running of The Mint 400 and in 2018, The Mint 400 and City Lights Shine brought back the decanter for its 50th Anniversary.

Head to El Cortez during the Off-Road Festival and get your piece of history!
