Road to The Mint 400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires Series is Back

Title says it all.. Glad to have a media partner in BFGoodrich that allows us to produce these videos!

With only two seasons under his belt in the Unlimited Trick Truck Class, Justin Lofton is no stranger to pressure. He’s been competing his entire life and was literally born in the desert. His playmates as a child were a motorcycle and a bmx bike. Like many kids who grew up in Imperial Valley, Justin began racing off-road at a young age with the dream of one day making it to the elite level.

Competitive by nature, Justin climbed his way up through the ladder system of off-road, starting in buggies and eventually making his way up into the unlimited trick truck class in 2015. That year, he won the Mint 400 overall and proved he could compete with the top dogs in the sport. However, he suffered two horrendous crashes later in the season that tested his resolve. Justin answered by returning to The Mint in 2016 and among one of the most stacked fields in off-road history, he became one of an elite few to win The Mint overall - back to back!

Can Justin do the impossible and win The Mint for a 3rd consecutive year? Come see for yourself! The Polaris RZR #Mint400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires returns to Las Vegas March 1st-5th, 2017.

**Cough** 7100 3peat, LOL.

It's no trophy truck/overall, but still equally difficult!

Cameron Steele is a true ambassador for off-road racing. A second-generation racer, Cameron grew up competing from a young age with his father, off-road champion Mark Steele. Cameron’s initial entry into the sport, like many, was on two wheels and his love affair with motorcycles continues today. He has raced everything from bikes to buggies and eventually made his way up into the premier unlimited truck class.

When Cameron is not racing, he is constantly organizing trips to Baja to share his love of off-road and regularly appears on TV as an announcer and commentator for off-road events. Cameron has a rich history racing The Mint, and has won multiple class championships, but so far the overall win has eluded him.

Can Cameron Steele take home his first Mint 400 overall victory this year? The Polaris RZR #Mint400 presented by BFGoodrich Tires returns to Las Vegas March 1st-5th, 2017.

Growing up in Southern California, Todd Jackson started riding and racing motocross bikes at a young age but after a serious crash it was either give up racing on bikes or get into a caged vehicle. Rather than give up on his his love of off-road racing, Todd rented a Trophy-Lite truck and came out with a win at his very first race at The Best in The Desert Parker 425. After that initial success, Todd was hooked. He purchased his own truck and began racing The Best in The Desert series. The Trophy-Lite class is an ultra competitive spec class where all the vehicles are identical so the focus is on driver skill rather than who has the biggest budget. This allows the average person to get behind the wheel and try their hand at off-road racing. Todd achieved the highlight of his three year racing career last year when he won his class at The Mint 400. The thrill of competition and the challenge of winning The Mint a second time have lured Todd back to the most inhospitable desert in North America. Come see Todd Jackson and the rest of the Trophy-lite racers go door to door at the 2017 Polaris RZR Mint 400, presented by BFGoodrich Tires March 1st - 5th in Sin City Las Vegas!
