In 1971 Hunter S. Thompson was hired to cover The Mint 400 for Sports Illustrated. Thompson later wrote of his experiences in the novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This was certainly incentive enough to attend the race. Local writer Jeff Pope and I spent the day watching the race from the pits and choking on dust.
