My buddy, Mike Ryan, recently raced Mt. Washington in his big rig. Here is round two of Size Matters – It just barely fit! Share it, like it and tell your friends to share it! Gotta love the big truck! GT.
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt. Washington Auto Road in the 2011 “Climb To The Clouds” in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely steep and narrow mountain road.
MIke’s time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time out of 61 competitors and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big Rig…ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race run up this treacherous road.
