The Heated Miss Mint competition concluded on Thursday night in front of a room full of racers where Finalists Sarah Coggin, Vanessa Golub-Ferrara and Rachel Mortenson gave their final comments hoping to sway the judges. When the final decision was made, it was Vanessa Golub-Ferrara out of Laguna Niguel, CA who took home the 5 Thousand dollars and the title of the 2012 Miss Mint.
Vanessa wasted no time getting to her duties. After a long night of photo-ops and celebration with racers and fans alike, Vasessa was up early to drop the green flag, sending racers on their way to battle the grueling 400 mile course. Vanessa was also there to lend a friendly face when the checkered flag dropped to welcome the race weary drivers back to the podium and to racing glory.
