The son of NASCAR Modified Tour legend Mike “Magic Shoes” McLaughlin, “Mad Max” is following in his father’s footsteps. The younger McLaughlin also started his career in modifieds, although the modifieds he raced were on dirt rather than pavement. A success transition to full-bodied stock cars in 2019 led to his first East Series victory at Watkins Glen and fifth in the final series standings.
