This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.

This is something that should be noted for all motorsports.

The Martelli Brothers, organizers of the Mint 400 in Las Vegas, had their inaugural Dash for Trash Desert Clean-up last Saturday. The idea: promote sustainable habits and responsible public land use. More than 14.5 tons of debris was picked up in the Nevada Desert.

A couple brief emails with Matt Martelli didn’t reveal a title sponsor and Matt didn’t talk about fund raising through recycling efforts.

The Mint 400,, and Republic Services picked up the expenses. I bring up those names because they deserved it.

Responsible use of public land for more than a place to race should be commended. I wish my few friends in the rally community would pay attention to this kind of responsibility.

More than 14.5 tons of debris removed. Remember in grade school when the teacher said to leave the space better than you found it?

Evidently someone at the Mint 400 paid attention in that class.
