Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

The overall lead in the 2014 Mint 400 desert race changed multiple times over the course of the event, but Andy "Bebo" McMillin and co-driver Brady Thompson triumphed in Steve Sourapas' #6 Ford powered Trophy Truck after a sixth-place start.

Race organizers reported record registration numbers this year, making the 2014 Mint 400 the biggest under its current management.

McMillin took home $10,000 from FOX, $10,000 from NFL player and Mint 400 racer DeMarcus Ware, $10,000 from Ford, and another $10,000 from the Best in the Desert "Trick Truck Challenge." It's good to be on top!

Mint 400 CEO Matt Martelli told us;

"Last year The Mint 400 became the biggest off-road desert race event on the planet. This year we went even bigger. We had the largest group of world-class off-road racers, including the largest Unlimited Trick Truck group in the history of the sport. We sold out our spectating areas before the Unlimited race started on Saturday, which has never happened before."

Competing vehicles took over the Las Vegas strip before the lights went green, bringing plenty of local attention to the event. But Mint organizers are even more excited that their race has been wrapped in to the Red Bull "Signature Series" on network TV. Even if we have to wait until summer for the broadcast, it's a huge boost for the visibility of off-road racing. Let's hope it fuels more action!

"There is no doubt that the Mint 400 is now the most visible desert off-road race worldwide. In fact I think it's safe to say our reach is only second to Dakar..." said Mint 400 COO Joshua Martelli.


It was reported elsewhere that Jeff and Terri Kary in the #1981 Yamaha Rhino won the ultra-fast, mini Trophy-Truck looking "SR1" UTV class, but race officials did not award any competitors a time in that class. More on this when organizers get back to us.

Great seeing Bebo back on top! Also absolutely absurd to see Macrae Glass score yet another win with the ex-LeDuc truck. The thing's nearly 15 years old and has finished every mile of every race it's ever entered. Curt knows how to build 'em.
