“As fast as we can go for as long as we can see where we’re going.” Driving the 1978 Mint 400

Published in blog.hemmings.com

While it takes about 12 minutes for the racing action to start in this episode of “The Racers” that focused on the 1978 Mint 400 that the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame dug up and posted to YouTube, it’s not as if the first half of the video is wasted. Instead, we see interviews with some of the leading off-road racers of the era and get some insight into not only how grueling the race was, but also the strategies competitors used in competing in the race.
