NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Hailie Deegan is a racer that wants to wheel anything she can get her hands on.
Born into motorsports, her development driving years were spent racing off road. Tires on dirt and in the air is where it all started and now with the invite from Method Race Wheels she is headed back off road to take on the Mint 400.
The Mint 400 started in 1968 as a way to promote The Mint 400 hotel and quickly grew into an international spectacle of off-road racing. The Mint 400 is the oldest and most prestigious off-road race in America, and is held each March just outside of Las Vegas, NV. Originally started in 1968 as a way to promote The Mint 400 hotel The Mint 400 and quickly grew into a massive international spectacle of off-road racing.
The current Mint 400 is a unique multi day format beginning with competitors in their race vehicles parading down the Vegas strip on Wednesday March 9th followed by The Mint 400 Off-Road Festival taking place on Thursday March 10th in downtown Las Vegas on Fremont St East. from 9am to 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.

On a blustery February afternoon at a secret Southern California desert location, Hailie Deegan and her 2022 Mint 400 machine came together for the first time.
Powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine, the Unlimited Truck SPEC class at the Mint 400 is one of the fastest vehicles in the desert. With 525 horsepower, 24” front suspension travel in front and 30” in the rear, these trucks eat bumps the size of refrigerators for hours on end. With some brief coaching from Chuck Dempsey of truck builders Brenthel Industries, she was quickly up to speed running multiple laps of the several mile long test loop.
After her first drive in the truck Hailie remarked “This might be the most fun I’ve ever had driving anything!”. Although shrouded in camouflage graphics for the clandestine testing session, the exclusive Method Race Wheels race livery for her Mint 400 debut will be revealed in the weeks leading up to the festivities in Las Vegas.
"THIS MIGHT BE THE MOST FUN I'VE EVER HAD DRIVING ANYTHING!"
