The 100th annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb was held in the hills of Colorado Springs. This 12.42 mile trek up Pikes Peak Highway has 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,115-foot summit. Racers from around the world gather for this famous race to the top. Layne Schranz returned to the peak this year with his Geico super stock car.
With last years upsetting run due to engine failure, the Layne Schranz Racing team returned with more more displacement and more power with the help of an Edelbrock top end kit. The SB2 engine was putting out 803hp, up from last years 700hp. With the addition of the top end kit, the team was able to shave almost 100lbs out of the nose of the car in addition to more power. The Edelbrock Victor SB2 cylinder heads were sent to Frankenstein Racing for some port work which helped make up the bulletproof drivetrain that pushed Layne to win his class and finally break the infamous 10 minute barrier.
