On August 6 there will be anywhere from 600 to 1,000 Mini Coopers coming along US 20 through LaGrange on their tour across the United States for Mini Takes the States (MMTS). They could be arriving in LaGrange County as early as 1 p.m.
The tour started on July 26 in San Francisco, Calif., and it will be ending on August 10 in Boston, Mass. The cars are hitting many iconic areas in the U.S. such as Grand Junction, Colo., Albuquerque, N.M., Dallas, Texas, Memphis, Tenn., Chicago, Ill., and Buffalo, N.Y.
This is the fifth bi-annual road rally and the drivers stop only to eat and sleep.
