The festivities kick off on Wednesday at 12:45 p.m. with the 4 Wheel Parts Vehicle Parade, as many of the race entrants including Adler’s Ultra4, will bring the thunder of over 75,000 horsepower down the famed Las Vegas Strip to Fremont Street. The green flag drops on the race itself on March 12 and features a field of over 350 of desert racing’s most prominent competitors.


The Mint 400 has built a reputation for attracting thousands of enthusiasts to Las Vegas to join the hundreds of race participants, creating what has become the greatest spectacle in American off-road racing. For the drivers and teams, the weeklong event culminates in a desert battle where the attrition rate makes merely finishing the first step on the way to capturing one of the many coveted class victories.

For Greg Adler, an experienced desert and short course competitor who raced in the Mint early in his off-road career, this Mint 400 represents his return to the desert as he brings his four-wheel drive Ultra4, purpose-built machine, normally reserved for King of the Hammers duty, to the open desert environment.

“We are proud to be a part of The Mint 400 and its tradition for being a very special event for racers and fans alike,” said Adler. “Beyond our support of the weeklong activities, we are looking forward to seeing what we can do in our Ultra4 car. It’s a rough course and this car has been built to take on anything that’s thrown at it. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

4 Wheel Parts is returning to sponsor the Mint 400 Vehicle Parade for the fourth consecutive year. The 4 Wheel Parts Vehicle Parade down the world renowned Las Vegas Strip, will showcase some of the toughest off-road vehicles on the planet with a procession spanning 10 miles. Grand Marshal and off-road legend Rod Hall will lead the immense group of racecars past the Las Vegas crowds eager to catch a glimpse of their favorites.


Time trials will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 10 and teams competing in the Mint 400’s Pit Crew Challenge sponsored by Method Race Wheels will have a chance to qualify and contend in the finals on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, the Limited Race starts at 6 a.m. with the Unlimited class racing at 12:30 p.m. The Awards Brunch at the Golden Nugget Hotel is slated to happen at 11 a.m. Sunday.

About the Mint 400
The Mint 400 began in 1967 and has established itself as a classic 400-mile battle between the world’s premier off-road racers. In 1988, after the Mint Hotel was sold, the race took a 20-year sabbatical until 2008 when it was restarted. Actor/director Steve McQueen, astronaut Gordon Cooper and power boat champion Bill Muncey number among the luminaries who have competed in past races.

Compton, California (February 16, 2016)  Recently, Larry McRae announced his retirement from Poison Spyder. While building Poison Spyder into an industry leading brand, Larry has been an innovator, establishing himself as an icon and entrenching himself in the off-road aftermarket industry and Jeep culture. Under Larry’s stewardship, Poison Spyder has become the benchmark in premium aftermarket Jeep armor while setting a high watermark for quality and brand authenticity. Larry’s engagement through the transition of Poison Spyder’s acquisition by Transamerican Manufacturing Group has served to ensure that the quality, craftsmanship and faithfulness to the PSC brand has and will remain, while products will continue to be manufactured in the same Banning, California facility.

Although Larry has moved into retirement, Poison Spyder will continue to be guided by the management, production, marketing and sales team that has been the foundation of the company alongside him and will be instrumental to the sustained growth of PSC.  Together with this team, TMG is committed to serving PSC customers with the same level of quality, workmanship and product innovation that they have relied on while preserving and protecting the beloved Poison Spyder brand.

Transamerican Auto Parts and Transamerican Manufacturing Group extends our best wishes to Larry McRae as he now embarks on this next phase of his journey.

Life is Better Off-Road™

There are those among us who believe that pursuing life off-road means rock crawling, trail running, and mud bogging, or maybe storming across the open desert at speed. We agree. Setting off to conquer the earth is why you built your ultimate truck or Jeep. To others, the ultimate adventure is finding the wave, hiking a new trail, kayaking down a roaring river or skiing the impossible run. Your adventure could be loading the family into your truck and heading out to camp under the stars, pulling your boat to a lake, or carrying your dirt bike to a remote trail. Whatever your adventure, make the journey as exciting as the destination. Get outside. Explore, unplug, play in the dirt and go further. Because Life is Better Off-Road.™

Compton, California (January 11, 2016) – Multiple Transamerican Auto Parts business divisions including off-road retailer 4 Wheel Parts, are returning as official event partners and sponsors for the 10th annual Ultra4 Nitto King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, California. Transamerican Manufacturing Group (TMG) will sponsor numerous activities and events, including the Smittybilt Every Man Challenge, under the auspices of its numerous off-road and performance aftermarket companies that include Smittybilt, Pro Comp, Rubicon Express and G2 Axle & Gear.

We are all looking forward to the 10th anniversary of this incredible event. ”

Complementing its sponsorship of the King of the Hammers Stock Class, Pro Comp recently launched its new Tire Racing Program helmed by Kevin Adler, offering racers in various classes the opportunity to benefit from special pricing on select Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 tires.
