The Mint Machine #BadCO

Not everyone can say “I won The Mint 400”, only the Elite in Off-Road have the honor to claim such an epic phrase. To claim it twice is where the Legends come in. This is where just a handful of people like Fritz Kroyer (’71 and ’72) Malcolm Smith (’77 and ’78) and in recent history, Andy McMillin (’09 and ’14) and Bryce Menzies (’13 and ’18) have such an amazing achievement, but then there’s only one who can say “I won the Mint 400 three times”…

three times mint 400 champion justin lofton trophy truck

In this 2019, Justin Lofton became the only driver to claim the feat three times, first winning twice in a row (’15 and ’16) and then winning the very last edition this past March. Justin Lofton on board of BadCo had made history and this is just a small tribute to the only person on Earth and his machine who has all the bragging rights in the “Great American Off-Road Race”
