Oakley earned its heritage by taking performance beyond the boundaries of possibility, crossing the line between reason and sanity to achieve the ultimate. Victory in off-road racing demands the same dedication and defiance of limits, and the Oakley Watch Division is proud to be the Official Timekeeper of the Mint 400.

The Mint 400 is a race with the octane of adrenalin, a full-throttle assault on the senses that defies sanity as it challenges the limits of possibility. That same fanaticism for obliterating limits is what led mad science to combine titanium, carbon fiber and stainless steel with the precision of Swiss watchmaking. Like the racers in the Mint 400, we torque technology for performance worthy of life at full throttle.

The driver and co-driver winning the overall championship in the Unlimited Class will receive the 12 Gauge™ Titanium Special Edition.The Fuse Box edition with a white dial face will go to the driver and co-driver winning the overall championship in the Limited Class.  The Fuse Box edition with a white dial face will go to the driver and co-driver winning the overall championship in the Limited Class.
