For the third consecutive year, the world’s toughest off-road race vehicles will parade down world famous Las Vegas Strip during the 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Vehicle Parade. This year, the parade will span fourteen miles, beginning at South Point Hotel & Casino and stretch all the way to Fremont Street, officially kicking off the 2015 Polaris RZR Mint 400 presented by General Tire. The massive group of off-road racecars will be led by Off-Road Legend and Mint 400 Champion, “Lightning” Larry Ragland.
Over ten million dollars worth of custom fabricated off-road racecars will be on display, and thunder down the Strip, in tribute to the famed Mint 400 vehicle processions that took place on Fremont Street decades ago. The vehicles are part of a massive field of 330 entries that will compete Saturday, March 14th just outside of Las Vegas at The Great American Off-Road Race.
“Off-road racing is the most exciting and thrilling motorsport on the planet,” said Joshua Martelli, COO and co-owner of The Mint 400. “In 2013, we made history by showcasing these amazing vehicles on the Strip for the people of Las Vegas, and we continue to make improvements each year. We are very grateful to the City of Las Vegas and everyone at 4 Wheel Parts for helping us make this happen!”
The 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Vehicle Parade will end with an off-road style kick-off party featuring, food, beer, music and the KMC Wheels Pit Crew Challenge Qualifying presented by Mystik Lubricants. Any team wishing to compete in the Mint 400 Pit Crew Challenge can qualify to compete in the finals, which will take place Thursday evening at 6:30pm
