For the fourth consecutive year, the world’s toughest off-road race vehicles will parade down the world famous Las Vegas Strip during the 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Vehicle Parade. This year, the parade will span ten miles, beginning at the TaylorMade Golf Experience on E. Sunset Road and stretching all the way to Atomic Liquors on Fremont Street, officially kicking off the 2016 Polaris RZR Mint 400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires. The massive group of off-road racecars will be led by 2016 Mint 400 Grand Marshal and Off-Road Legend, Rod Hall.
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 350 entries that will compete Saturday, March 12th 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 a kick-off party at Atomic Liquors on 10th and Fremont.
