Kyle Jergensen took 2nd place overall and won the Unlimited Truck SPEC Class.

After qualifying in 31st, Jergensen picked his way to the front of the pack in his Camburg-built RIGID Industries-sponsored “Beast” Unlimited Truck SPEC racer. A battle developed for the overall win between Jergensen and Adam Householder’s Unlimited Truck. Householder enjoyed a significant horsepower advantage with no restrictions on engine size or output compared to the “spec” engines of the Unlimited Truck SPEC class.

Jergensen ran with Householder for most of the 400-mile race, eventually taking the Unlimited Truck SPEC class win and crossing the finish line just over 10 minutes behind Householder for second overall.

Anderson started 13th in his class. He quickly pushed his NOS Energy Polaris ProR through the rough terrain and made passes early on, which continued through the race day. As the race played out, Anderson battled for the top spot in his class on corrected time going into the last lap. Anderson was the first UTV across the finish line and secured not only first in class but Overall Limited Race Win.

Dubbed “The Great American Off-Road Race,” The Mint 400 is one of the most prestigious and historic desert races in the U.S. Initially started in 1968 during the Mint Hotel’s annual deer hunt, The Mint 400 quickly became a top-tier desert race.

Celebrities and racers from all genres of motorsports flocked to the race. Today, that still rings true, with over 500 off-road racers taking on The Mint 400’s rugged and punishing terrain just outside of Sin City.

“This was a big race weekend for RIGID; we’re proud to back some of the best racers in this segment,” said RIGID Industries President Mitch Williams. “Both Kyle Jergensen and Ronnie Anderson are rising stars and we are happy to support their efforts and have them as part of the RIGID Nation. We can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the rest of the season.”
