Driver Paul Robinson goes off-road at Vegas

Will compete in Mint 400 desert race March 12

Wood River Valley off-road driver Paul Robinson, 56, is looking forward to competing in front of a projected 60,000 spectators and a television audience at the General Tire Mint 400 event from March 12-16 at Las Vegas, Nev. “It’s the Super Bowl of off-road racing,” said Robinson. He explained that, last October, he heard from a car owner in Las Vegas inviting Robinson to drive for the Desert Runners Racing Team at a fall event in Laughlin, Nev. Robinson said, “I accepted and raced their car to second place in the championship. Then they asked me to drive the two big U.S. races—the General Tire Mint 400 and The Vegas-to-Reno 500 in 2014. It was like I just got picked up from Triple A and got drafted to the Yankees. Ready and willing to hold the throttle open where others don’t dare—97 starts in off-road racing with no wrecks and no rollovers! And now hungry to win at the highest level of U.S. off-road racing.” Robinson will drive the Desert Runners Racing No. 1215 Pro Buggy.
