"In some circles, the Mint 400 is a far, far better thing than the Super Bowl, the Kentucky Derby and the Lower Oakland Roller Derby Finals all rolled into one. This race attracts a very special breed..." ~ Hunter S. Thompson
Titled "The Mint 400 - Special Breed" graphic artist Joey Feldman has created a limited edition, full color screenprint. Commemorating the return of the motorcycles to the legendary race after a 45 year hiatus, the piece also pays homage to gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The Martelli Brothers commissioned Joey to create an new iconic image for the 51st anniversary running of The Great American Off-Road Race. "Feldman's unique Heavy Metal style has drawn attention from all corners of the globe, making him the perfect collaborator for the project," say the Martellis. "Special Breed" combines the spirit of desert racers from The Mint 400's golden years with Hunter S.Thompson's twisted musings on the Mint in his seminal book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
This limited edition fine art print will be available Friday March 1st @ 9AM PST via the Official Mint 400 web-store:
