Mad Media announced the Mint 400 will be rescheduled. Large scale events ion Nevada are still not permitted under COVID 19 guidelines. Organizers were forced to move the event to December 1st through 5th.
“The health and safety of our racers, sponsors, exhibitors, staff, and the public has always been, and will always be, our number one priority,” said Mint 400 Co-Owner and CEO Matt Martelli. “We don’t have a green light from the State or County to hold the event in March, because all large scale events are still on hold. We are making this decision now because we recognize that traveling to Las Vegas and participating in the Mint is a significant financial investment. By doing so, we are preserving the safety, integrity, fun, and value of this historic race for everyone involved.”
The announcement comes after several months of consultation with Nevada’s permitting agencies that include Clark County, city of Las Vegas, Fremont Street East District, local law enforcement and the Nevada Department of Transportation.
