“We’re incredibly excited to welcome Vegas Off-Road Tours as the newest Mint 400 sponsor, and we’re grateful that they chose to support our Military Challenge,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “The Military Challenge is one of the most special parts of our event every year, as our competitors show military members and their families that we’ve got their back through our fundraising and awareness efforts. With Vegas Off-Road Tours having these teams’ back with free pit support throughout the race, we know our Military Challenge teams are going to feel that same level of support.”

More information on the Mint 400 Military Challenge, including active fundraising efforts and how to donate, can be found at themint400.com/militarychallenge.


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 a hotel promotion soon grew into a legitimate desert race. Since its 2008 revival, “The Great American Off-Road Race” has only gotten bigger and more prestigious, and deeper fields every year only make it tougher to win.

This year’s BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 will take place from December 1-5 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.
