In off-road racing a tire change can decide the outcome of the race! The Mint 400 is proud to announce the return of the KMC Wheels Pit Crew Challenge. Come watch the top teams in off-road racing battle head to head to determine who has the fastest pit crew in off-road! Each three-man team will compete against the clock and each other, to see who can change two tires the fastest.
The KMC Wheels Pit Crew Challenge is a celebration of the dedicated pit crews that spend countless hours prepping, maintaining, and fixing off-road race vehicles. Eight Class 1500 teams and eight Trick Truck teams will battle in a single elimination format to win thousands of dollars in prizes and determine who has the fastest pit crew.
Come cheer on your favorite team! The fun kicks off at 4:30pm, with the Rugged Radios “Meet and Greet” driver autograph session, and continues with the KMC Wheels Pit Crew Challenge at 6:30pm. All events take place on Fremont and 6th Street and are completely free to the public!
