Crazy but my father in law saw Laughlin on last week, before the Mint. It was in the afternoon on Thursday I believe.
YouTube version is coming very soon. This cut will include ~20 minutes of additional footage so it's not just drag and drop off the TV protect. Very soon!

I think that was the best Mint 400 airing to date, I may be a little bias and would like to thank Mad Media for the opportunity for small limited teams such as my self the possibility for national exposure! Our sponsors loved it. Thank you, bring on the 2018 Mint!
