Las Vegas, NV. (Mar. 14, 2022) – For a second year, a team of Green Berets with the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) successfully raced two Flyer ground mobility vehicles in the 2022 Mint 400 Military Challenge.
Billed as the “Great American Off-Road Race,” the Mint 400 is one of the oldest and prestigious off-road races of its kind in the United States, taking place every March in the grueling Nevada desert.
The Flyer vehicles were first raced in the Mint 400 in 2020.
This year, both vehicles crossed the finish line together after roughly nine hours and 200 miles.
