The 2019 Mint 400 was another successful event filled with spectators from all over the country, parades, and plenty of racing.  One of the biggest thrills of the weekend was when Justin Lofton made history with his 3rd BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 Victory. You can find out more on this historic moment here.

We were fortunate to have had a great location right on the corner of Fremont Street. Our sister company, RT Pro was able to join us at the event where we had some sweet rigs stationed at the booth that caught the eyes of those who passed by. We had the Polaris 170 for the kids, the Can-am X3RS for the adults, Project Ascension showing off one of our coilover conversion systems, our 2019 Ford Ranger SEMA build, known as #ProjectRangerX , and finally we partnered up with Napier Outdoors by allowing them to showcase one of their tents on the back of Project Ascension. This attention-drawing booth was a hit and we enjoyed getting the opportunity to talk to everyone that stopped by.

 

A few weeks back, the BDS Suspension backed Desert Concepts race team took on the prestigious Mint 400. Over the years the Mint has built a reputation for being one of the toughest desert races in the states bringing the top racers from around the country and beyond to compete. The Mint is more than a race, it’s an experience. In the days prior to event Fremont St. is taken over as offroad racing’s converge on Las Vegas. KOH founder and car owner, Dave Cole piloted the #4454 against the pack of 325 entrants, bringing home a 2nd place in class finish despite having mechanical issues, electrical gremlins, and down right bad luck.  Check out some of the in car footage from the start of the race with Desert Concepts and the #4454 car:
