For the first time in history, off-road race vehicles paraded down world famous Las Vegas Blvd for the inaugural 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Off-Road Vehicle Parade! Over ten million dollars worth of custom fabricated off-road racecars thundered down the Strip, in tribute to the famed Mint 400 vehicle processions that took place on Fremont Street decades ago. The machines are part of a massive field of over 250+ entries that will compete Saturday, March 23rd just outside of Las Vegas at The Great American Off-Road Race.

Some may think that we don't have a real off-road racing team, but we have a fast truck and don't really give a s**t what you think. The Nitro Circus/Thrillbillies team enters the Off-Road Mint 400 in Vegas this weekend!

Introduction
The history Mint 400 - a north american off-road race with rich history. The Mint 400 quite possibly is the most famous desert race in the world. At least it was, during its run from 1968 to 1988.

In addition to serving as the backdrop for Hunter S. Thompson’s groundbreaking novel “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” the Mint 400 was the event for serious racers from all disciplines as well as actors, entertainers and even astronauts. During its heyday, the race attracted Indianapolis 500 winners such as Parnelli Jones, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears, off-road racing pioneers Mickey Thompson, Walker Evans and Ivan Stewart, actors James Garner and Steve McQueen and astronaut Gordon Cooper.

The brainchild of Norm Johnson, the former publicity director of Del Webb’s Mint Hotel and Casino, the Mint 400 annually drew tens of thousands of spectators (estimates ran as high as 100,000 some years) to Fremont Street for tech inspection — much to the delight of local businesses.

Now, 20 years after its demise (the race foundered for several years after 1988 under a different name and sponsor before folding), a local volunteer group of desert racers has obtained the “Mint 400” name and will attempt to recapture the spirit of the original event.
