Jefferies Racing Built K&N Filters Buggy Strong in Mint 400 Desert Off Road Race
The General Tire Mint 400 desert off road race ran north of Las Vegas, Nevada. The course consisted of four 100 mile punishing laps. Blinding dust was only one problem racers had to face. The course was extremely rocky and rough and the fine silt was everywhere.

Third place finish for Jefferies Racing Built K&N Filters Class 1 Buggy in the Mint 400 desert off road race
The Jefferies brothers started the race and at the end of lap one found themselves in the lead by eight minutes. Romans and Bennett then took over the driving duties. They were slowed down by the unrelenting dust and a flat tire. They moved to sixth place when it was time to switch drivers again.
Damen and Casey Jefferies moved steadily back up through the field on the final lap. The team earned a third place finish in Class 1 and eighth overall.
“The Nevada desert is so hard on equipment,” said Jefferies. “It’s a true testament to how well our
perform. The silt and dust were so bad that I could not even see the front bumper of the car at times during the race. Our K&N filters kept the engine clean in that type of environment.”
Damen Jefferies said overall it was fun coming back to race the Mint. “I won my very first race in the Mint in 1994 in Class 9,” he said.
The next race for Jefferies Racing will be the BITD Terrible’s 250 in Primm, Nevada on April 18. From there, the team will go to the SCORE Baja 500 on June 6.
