FORT MILL, SC - (January 15, 2010) - The General Tire Mint 400 race won't officially roll off the starting line until March 27th, but the Desert Nation's premiere event gets an early start with a call for entries to the Miss Mint 400 competition.

Think you've got what it takes? Upload your photo to www.generaltire.com before February 8th, and get your friends to vote for you. Voting will run from February 15 through March 15, 2010.

Three Miss Mint 400 finalists will attend the Mint 400 kickoff event on Fremont Street on Thursday, March 25, 2010, where the winner will be crowned. Miss Mint 400 will appear at the Mint 400 Tech Day on Friday, March 26th and will help start the race Saturday, March 27, 2010. The winner also will receive $1,500 and a personal photo shoot. Contestants must be 21 or older, and must be able to attend the General Tire Mint 400 March 25-28, 2010.

"General Tire reinstated the Miss Mint 400 competition at last year's event, and contestants and fans flooded our website with entries and votes," said Dana Zamalloa, PR and Communications Manager, General Tire. "With such great results in the first year, we're looking for an even greater response for this year's event."

The General Tire Mint 400 is one of the premiere events in the desert racing season, and Team GT drivers already are committed to taking on the arduous course on General's Grabber competition tires.

General Tire is 'unleashing the fury' for a third season of off-road action with the Grabber competition tire. Designed with a tough, three-ply DuragenTM-reinforced body construction to stand up to the rigors of off-road conditions, the Grabber also features a specially-engineered, competition-specific tread compound. In addition, the Grabber name and General Tire logo are prominently featured on the sidewall in red and white letters. The Grabber competition tires are designed in size 37-12.50R17 for class 8 and trophy truck/trick truck and 35-12.50R17 for class 1, 6, 7, 7 S, stock mini and Protruck.

General Tire also has a complete line of Grabber tires for the passenger and light truck market, including the new Grabber DOT-approved off-road tire (to be released later this year); the Grabber HTS, which delivers the perfect synergy of comfort, durability and performance; the Grabber UHP, which sets a whole new standard in performance and ride quality for SUVs, light trucks and crossover vehicles; and Grabber AT2, designed for aggressive all-terrain traction in all weather conditions.
