Pike's Peak Race

Have you seen the in-car video of Rhys Millen haulin' up Pike's Peak? It's a great video. It's all over the inner webs, but I put it on my blog at Bestop Blog

Absolutely nothing to do with my company, or with jeeps even. Just a neat thing. I drove up Pike's Peak the weekend before the race, so it's even better to see the corners I remember ("Oh, that's where my mom asked me to slow down..").

And if you think this is a transparent ploy to get people to visit my blog, well, you sir, are a total ... well, maybe there's a little truth to that.

What is on the front of the semi? My guess is a marmot scoop. But I could be wrong.

A camera boom. Of course. Thanks.

There was one of these on a trailer in town when I was there. Mid engined, exhaust so huge it looked like it was rocket powered. Probably enough boost in the turbos to actually lift a rocket.

My dad liked them, but he drives a Freightliner around all the time, so he's biased.

Didn't hear one fired up. Maybe next year I'll mark the calendar to go watch.

Having driven up there also, does make it more fun too watch.
