Industry-leading retailer of aftermarket parts and accessories for off-road vehicles, 4 Wheel Parts, is scheduled to sponsor the 2013 Mint 400 Off-Road Vehicle Parade on March 20. The inaugural parade in Las Vegas celebrates General Tire’s Mint 400 presented by Polaris. For the first time in history off-road vehicles will be showcased cruising down Las Vegas Boulevard.
The rich tradition of past Fremont Street processions is being rekindled and updated by 4 Wheel Parts. “I was honored to take part in the Fremont Street parades years ago and Team 4 Wheel Parts is extremely proud to be involved in this new inaugural parade,” says Jeepspeed racer Eric Heiden. Heiden started racing the Mint 400 in the mid-80s and says it’s great to see the parade tradition resurrected.
The 4 Wheel Parts Mint 400 Off-Road Vehicle Parade kicks off at Circus Circus Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on Wednesday, March 20 at 3:15 p.m. local time. The route travels three miles south and winds up at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. Participants in the event are a segment of the 250+ entries competing Saturday, March 23rd at The Great American Off-Road Race. The Mint 400 has garnered a reputation as the greatest off-road desert race in North America and after a 20 year hiatus it was re-imagined in 2008.
