Great Day at the Mint 400 for Weddle Industries

Las Vegas, Nevada—The Mint 400 is the biggest spectacle of the BITD season. From the parade of trucks down the world famous Las Vegas strip to the The Fremont Street take over, to the race itself, The Mint is a fantastic show. This year’s Polaris RZR Mint 400 once again proved to be ‘The Great American Off Road Race'. 

This year’s race was packed with action in all classes. The Mint was also a great race for Weddle-equipped cars. In Class 10, 17-year-old Brock Hegar racked up his second straight BITD win in Mendeola LQ-equipped car 1074. 1088 Chase Warren grabbed 3rd  and 1099 Adam Pfankuch finished 4th, both in Mendeola S5-equipped cars. Keith Waibel took 5th in Mendeola LQ-equipped car 1072. 1055 Kash Vessels/Shane Earn’s 7th and 1022 Nathan Martino’s 10th made it a strong Weddle showing in the top 10.  Overall, Weddle-equipped cars took 4 out of the 5 top spots, and 6 out of the top 10.
