Mint 400 recap

600offtheline
1107 (rebadged 4707 for the race) off the line at the start of the Mint 400.

I wish I could say we won, or at least finished the Mint 400, but neither was the case. The car was in good shape, the team was ready, but luck wasn’t with us. More on that.

The parade down the Las Vegas Strip was a blast. Carolyn Medrano drove with Gil co-dogging.

After the parade, we parked on Fremont Street for a few hours, chatted with race fans and checked out the competition.

ZOMG, a selfie with Robert Acer. My life is complete.

And we were taken out by the 3003 Desert Lite truck registered to Mike Bach. “That’s desert racing,” said BITD owner Casey Folks.

Engine is already out for repairs and the backup motor is being prepped. A lot of damage to repair before our next race.
