“The Mint 400 has held the title of the toughest, most spectacular off-road race in North America since 1968 when it was first run,” said Mike Emerson, VP Racing Fuels Regional Manager. “We’re fueling SCORE and BEST IN THE DESERT and now the historic MINT 400 in 2019. This underscores how important the VP name is to enthusiasts, off-road racers, engine builders, and series.”

It’s going to be an exciting week of action, and we’re excited to have VP along for the ride,” said Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli. “We’re looking forward to welcoming VP Racing Fuels as the Official Fuel Partner of this year’s Mint 400.”
