The Mint 400 festivities kicked off Wednesday afternoon with a parade of race vehicles down the iconic Las Vegas strip. The vehicles arrived on Fremont street to start the Mint 400 events which include a pit crew challenge, Miss Mint 400 crowning and celebrity driver autograph signings. Dozens of vendors line Fremont street as race vehicles snake their way through the tech inspection process.
Qualifying for the unlimited vehicles was held at a secret location just north of Las Vegas. Harley Letner qualified on the pole position for the Concrete Motorsports Team. Letner gets to start out front with “clean air” when the green flag drops Saturday.
For the second year in a row, motorcycles are back at the Mint 400. They will begin racing Friday morning. Limited classes will start Friday afternoon. Stay tuned to www.dirtsportsworld.com for full coverage and results.
