The Mint 400 has an interesting history, after almost getting killed a few few years back, its been thriving in recent years as on of The Great American Off-Road Races. Bringing in a wide range of racing classes with teams from around the country and beyond, this 400-mile race draws a big crowd each year out in Vegas as they take over Fremont Street for a festival, run a parade of cars through the streets of Vegas and take to the nearby open desert for the racing action.
Typically held in March each year, this was one of the last events that ran in 2020 prior to the COVID-19 stay home, stay safe orders here in the USA. Fast forward to 2021 and with things still up in the air they decided to postpone the event rather than cancel it and now that thinks are starting to get back to normal they're running the event in December this year before a quick turnaround to bring it back to its regularly scheduled timing for March 2022.
BDS has been attending this event for years alongside our friends from FOX and this year is no different. With Bronco a hot commodity this year we're out showing on some badass builds to include the BDS Fire Command Bronco and Rockstar Garage's Scosche Broncos. Additioanlly we have the Curtis Motorsports chase truck, Project Go Beyond and a handful of other Tuscany-built, BDS/FOX-equipped Shelby-edition trucks out on display. Following the Wednesday parade through town, the festival runs on Fremont Street (Thursday) with tech inspection and contingency. From there everything gets backed up and heads over to Primm for Qualifying on Friday before the green flag drops for racing Saturday.
