on 22 March 2010


Canidae Trophy Truck team prepares for one of offroad's toughest races; websites offer live tracking, blogging, and photos directly from the race.

San Luis Obispo, CA (March 18, 2010) - The Canidae All Natural Pet Foods Trophy Truck team has developed a new plan of attack for next week's Mint 400 race in Nevada. By working around the clock since returning from the Baja San Felipe 250 race, the Canidae team has implemented several changes to ensure that mechanical problems do not prevent them from achieving victory.

Thursday night, March 25th will officially kick off the 2010 SNORE Mint 400 with a huge FanFest party on Freemont Street in Las Vegas starting at 6:00PM. The Canidae race truck will be on display with team drivers Scott Whipple and Scott Gailey signing autographs along with other drivers. The FanFest party is free, so all race fans are invited to come down and hang out with the Canidae Team.


Friday morning will come quickly after the FanFest party and the Canidae truck will leave the start line just after 7:00AM for qualifying. The team drew the 3rd place starting position for qualifying so the track will be ideal for putting the truck in a great starting position for Saturday’s race. Contingency will start at 9:00AM on Friday and will be held on the famed Freemont Street just as the original Mint 400 did years ago. All 300 plus competitors and their vehicles will push their way down through the vendors on their way to tech inspection. Canidae Pet Foods is proud to be a contingency sponsor for the Mint 400. Any racer, in any class, can win a bag of premium Canidae pet food, $50.00 or even $100.00 cash if they win their class. It is a huge street party and fun for the whole family. Don’t miss out!


Saturday morning at 7:00AM is when all teams get down to business. As the trucks and cars take the green flag for the first of four laps for the 2010 Mint 400, hundreds of thousands of race fans will watch the race from several designated “spectator areas” around the 106 mile loop. These areas are free of charge and will offer a great vantage point to watch these amazing vehicles traverse the rough Nevada desert at incredible speeds. Come and witness this spectacle for yourself. You can get a list of “spectator areas” at
