15 year-old Seth Quintero tackles the historic Mint 400

He may not be old enough to drive, but he’s old enough to race. Seth Quintero may only be 15 years old and not have his driver’s license, but it hasn’t hindered his professional off-road racing career. When he’s not attending high school as a sophomore near San Diego, he’s racing UTVs across the country.

His next challenge is his first desert race, the famed Mint 400. Started in 1967, the grueling race through the Las Vegas desert gained notoriety when it was immortalized in Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Quintero attempts to survive the 400-mile race and will immediately face another obstacle the following week – getting his driver’s permit.
