NGK Spark Plugs Mini Mint 400 Youth UTV Races

Title Sponsor of the Mini Mint 400 Youth UTV Races

The Mint 400 was more than happy to welcome NGK Spark Plugs as an official sponsor of the 2020 BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400. NGK Spark Plugs served as the title sponsor of this year’s Mini Mint 400 Youth UTV Races and knocked it out of the park with their gift bags for the winners. The next generation of UTV racers is quickly becoming established with dominant performances by Dallas Gonzalez, Chase Carr, Mikey Kelly and Chase Mankin to name a few. These kids continue to get better every race and with massive companies like NGK Spark Plugs behind their events, the future’s looking bright.
