The BFGoodrich Tires Mint 400 returns to Las Vegas, Nevada this December from the 1st to the 5th. . The world-famous Mint 400 has always attracted celebrities and racers from around the globe.

The inaugural “Mint 400 Desert Rally” was held in Las Vegas in 1968 as a way to promote The Mint Hotel and Las Vegas Gun Club. The race has a rich and storied history and has once again become the largest and most important off-road race in the world. The event attracts over 65,000 spectators to Las Vegas for the race and week-long activities. It features a massive field of hundreds of teams competing across an incredible fifty individual classes, including motorcycles which have been reintroduced to the Mint two years ago for the first time since 1976.

The 108-mile loop that extends from the California-Nevada state line in Primm to the Southern edge of Las Vegas in Jean, NV is considered the most grueling and challenging off-road racecourse in America. With five massive spectator areas, The Mint 400 puts fans safely in front of thrilling off-road racing action.
