The Mint 400 is the oldest and most well-known off-road race in the U.S. Taking place in Nevada, racers compete with custom built vehicles designed for the challenging terrain. This year Green Berets from the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) raced with their Ground Mobility Vehicle 1.1s. The active duty personnel modified military vehicles to meet the challenge and participate in the long race. “We are excited to see how we compete and see where we stack up with the industry professionals that are here,” commented Capt. Eric, Operational Detachment Alpha commander. The Green Berets used the opportunity to push the vehicles to their limit and test out their capabilities under a scenario different from combat.
