The 2020 BF Goodrich Mint 400 is about to go off! By Saturday, over 1,000 racers and 45,000 spectators and vendors will have descended on the Las Vegas, Nevada area to get in on the action in the Mojave Desert. Teams are already in the Sin City area to get their vehicles tech-inspected this week, and get ready for the big races on Friday and Saturday.
Friday will be the Motorcycle and Limited Class races. The motorcycle race begins at 7am and continues until 2pm. At 12:30pm, the Limited race starts, and should wrap up around 8pm. Classes including UTV Pro Turbo, UTV NA, UTV Pro Unlimited, Open Sportsman, and Class 5 Unlimited will compete in this event.
Saturday will be the main event as the Unlimited Class vehicles line up to conquer the desert. This year’s Grand Marshal, Bruce Meyers (inventor of the Meyers Manx), will wave the flag to start the racers off and see them on their way. Classes including Unlimited Truck (aka Trick Truck), Unlimited Truck Legends, Class 1, Baja Truck, 6100 Truck, Super Buggy, Class 8, Ultra 4, Class 10, and Class 7 will all be racing simultaneously in this event.
