About this event
Time Trial Rallycross for crappy cars... or whatever you got!
HooptieX at THE MINT 400!! - Friday and Saturday 12/3 - 12/4 - 9am to 6:00pm both days
It's finally here! We are joining up with the Mint 400 race in Primm, NV December 3rd & 4th.
The Mint 400 is the oldest and most prestigious off-road race in America, and is held in the treacherous foothills of Sin City. The multi-day event features a massive vehicle parade down the world famous Las Vegas Strip, a two day festival on historic Fremont Street, and two days of grueling off-road racing on a desolate and punishing 400-mile racecourse. Thousands of recreational enthusiasts come to watch 500 race teams in 50+ classes from 25 different states and 15 different countries go door to door, while the Livestream coverage is beamed to over 800,000 viewers worldwide. No other off road race allows fans the thrilling experience of watching the top off-road race teams from around the world battle for fame and glory.
So how do we fit in?
We will be racing on our own designated short course just north (walking distance) of the Mint 400 start line. Our course will be a combination of pavement and a 3/4 mile long closed dirt track. Will you be racing in front of the fans? YES. Are they going to be in awe of our professional skillz? YES. Will we be the crowd favorite over those funded fancy trophy truck drivers? 100%. We will be running our standard time-trial style format along with dual start battles on the dirt track!
