The legendary Mint 400 has always had a larger-than-life feel to it that extends beyond the action packed racing. From its central role in Hunter S. Thompson’s cult classic “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” to Vanna White and Linda Carter being Miss Mint to the Jim Beam decanters and board games that have become valuable memorabilia. The latest must-have Mint 400 product is this limited edition back pack from Impact by MasterCraft Safety. The first 300 drivers of record and their co-driver will receive one of these collector packs, but don’t feel left out if your name is not on the entry list.
Impact by MasterCraft has built a reputation for customized products, from race suits for championship winning drivers like Rob MacCachren to crew apparel for the biggest teams in NASCAR. It is no surprise that Mad Media and Best in the Desert turned to Impact when they wanted a highly functional, unique product for the Mint 400. Constructed from 2680 Ballistic Nylon with six storage compartments, the Mint 400 back pack is versatile enough to hold binoculars and race radios on the weekend and school books or laptops during the week. There are specific pockets for your iPod and a padded sleeve for up to a 17-inch laptop. The padded back, comfortable shoulder straps, and waist strap ensure comfort no matter how many contingency freebies you stuff inside. For only $49.95 you can have the same backpack as your favorite desert racer, but order soon. You can purchase your own slice of history at contingency, but supplies are limited to stock on hand.
