Race number 2 is in the books for the 2018 race season and 50th running of the legendary MINT 400 sure didn't disappoint. The field was stacked once again with 18 trucks to take the green flag at the 6am start. Out of the gate quick Josh Cobb made his way to the front and was holding solid but on lap 2 issues with the driveline would sideline him for some time. This let Spitz take over the lead position where he would stay to the finishline. Greg Bragg, who had been running up front early but rolled on lap 1 and was set back several positions. The 6012 would battle back to finish 2nd on the day. Cory Winner rounded out the top 3 with a consistent pace which kept him close as some of the lead trucks would develop probelms from the brutal MINT course.
