The Mint 400 is coming! Off road fans from around the world will be gathering in Las Vegas this week to celebrate one of the greatest off-road race legacies in US history. From the first Mint in 1967, the race has filled with the roughest and toughest drivers the world has ever seen. Celebrity auto enthusiasts like Steve McQueen and James Garner have even appeared at the start line. This years race promises to be yet again one for the record books. With more than 55 Trick Trucks (Trophy Trucks) battling across this 400 mile grueling course, this could be the best Mint to date.
