Mint 400: MagnaFlow Camburg Experience - Event Recap

The 2024 Mint 400 was an epic week out in Las Vegas and Primm. Check out all the action that led up to our win at the Mint 400 making us back-to-back winners of two iconic off-road races!

Wednesday – The Parade

125 desert racing vehicles and over $40 million worth of desert racing machinery hit the Las Vegas Strip for the Mint 400 Vehicle Parade. This year, Team MagnaFlow Camburg lead the parade with 3 MagnaFlow-equipped vehicles, including the MagnaFlow Camburg SPEC Truck with Legend, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart behind the wheel!

Thursday – Off-Road Festival

The best of the best in Off-Road took to Fremont Street for the Mint 400 Off-Road Festival and the MagnaFlow Camburg booth was thriving in action.

Our MagnaFlow Camburg race teams were present from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm to meet fans, autograph limited edition posters, and build the anticipation for the upcoming races.

Leading the autograph session was icon, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart accompanied by MagnaFlow Camburg Spec Truck driver, Kyle Jergensen, and other MagnaFlow Camburg equipped vehicle drivers such as Nick Isenhour, Alex Wacker, Justin "Bean" Smith, and Blake Wilkey.

Friday – Qualifying

A familiar face waved the green flag to begin qualifying, as Ivan Stewart kicked off the race weekend. 

With expectations sky high for the Great American Off-Road Race, Mint 400, Kyle Jergensen and Shawn Shanks (co-driver), ripped through the course with a time of 4:14.185, placing them first in class for the Unlimited SPEC Trucks.

While Kyle and Shawn took first in qualifying, MagnaFlow Camburg-equipped driver, Blake Wilkey took on the Class 11 race and brought home the crown! In his iconic purple buggy, Wilkey took 1st place with an average lap time of 2:36:54.60!


Saturday – Race Day

Taking the momentum from qualifying (and our King of the Hammers 2024 class win), the MagnaFlow Camburg Unlimited Spec Truck wasted no time and moved up from its 31st starting position to 9th within Lap 1 (of 4).

Riding strong all day, the #222 truck got a flat tire, but that didn't slow driver Kyle Jergensen down. After a quick pit stop to swap tires, Kyle gave it his all and was back on track to lead with a corrected time.

With the night closing in, Kyle and co-driver, Shawn Shanks raced through the finish Mint 400 finish line landing in 1st and bringing home the Mint 400 Unlimited SPEC trophy and placing 2nd overall against other Unlimited trucks.

Up Next, California 300

Now with back-to-back wins, we’re getting the MagnaFlow Camburg team and truck ready to bring home the win at the 2024 California 300 in October! Engineering race-tested and race-proven parts will continue to be our ultimate goal.
