The Banks Powered Turbo Freightliner Truck, driven by Pikes Peak International Hill Climb favorite Mike Ryan, did great. It rained and snowed later in the day when it was our time to race. So driver Mike Ryan couldn’t go 100%, but he did an awesome job. Had to take it easy in the corners but hammered it in the straights. Next year, weather permitting, we will be back to destroy the record!
A couple things we’d like to point out… those spectators at 0:59 are crazy close to the track! And at 2:27 you can see that yes, it was indeed very wet up there when we ran.
