GREENVILLE, S.C. – The brand that invented the all-terrain tire category is putting its heritage of success in off-road racing behind the largest desert race in the United States annually – the Mint 400. The Polaris RZR Mint 400 Presented by BFGoodrich Tires will be March 9-12, 2016, near Las Vegas.
San Diego, CA – Motorsports production powerhouse Mad Media led by directing team “The Martelli Brothers” announced premiere dates for their documentary style TV shows on The Polaris RZR Mint 400 presented by General Tire and the Polaris RZR UTV World Championship presented by UTVUnderground.com.

Primm, Nevada (July 9, 2015) — This Sunday, a 2-hour TV special on The Polaris RZR Mint 400, the toughest off-road race in America, will air on NBC as part of the Red Bull Signature Series at 2:30pm EST/11:30am PST. Each year, the bright lights and sounds of the world famous Las Vegas Strip are temporarily drowned out by the roar of 850 horsepower trucks roaring across the desert at speeds nearing 140 miles per hour. From bone jarring terrain to high speed passes, exasperating equipment failure to spectacular rollovers, The Mint 400 is the premiere American off-road race that draws fans of all ages, celebrities and the top drivers in the world.
They say the third time is a charm… and in the case of DragonFire-sponsored Pro Unlimited UTV pilot Lacrecia Beurrier this is certainly true. She beat the odds in Las Vegas and won the legendary Mint 400 this past weekend! Since the inaugural event back in 1967, the 400-mile race through the Nevada desert has earned its reputation for being the toughest off-road race in North America. In fact, last year Lacrecia was lucky to even finish, but this year she hit the jackpot at The Mint!
“What a race!” Starkey said on the podium. “This is the second time we’ve run the mint, but the first time we’ve won it. We started out in third and got out in front, so we only had to worry about someone catching up. It was unbelievable. The course was great…real fast…getting a little chewed up. It couldn’t be better.”
UTVs and other limited classes were still on the course when Starkey crossed the finish line. Starkey thanked his team and race organizers and reported his car had no flats and the engine was flawless.
As the 2015 Best In The Desert season is now in full swing, the largest state side race of the year, The Mint 400, is taking over Las Vegas, Nevada all week for what is now becoming a race comparable in size to some of the greatest motorsports events in the country. This race will be the second race of the year for Jim Beaver and the #15 General Tire/Down & Dirty Radio Show Trick Truck.
In an ongoing effort to expose off-road racing to new audiences globally, Mad Media and The Martelli Brothers bring you the full, feature-length version of the 2011 General Tire Mint 400 on YouTube!
