Rock racer JT Taylor took his unique vehicle to Pikes Peak to tackle the race’s exhibition class at the 88th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. He finished first in class with a time of 14 minutes, 7 seconds, hitting a top speed of 86 mph.

“I am so excited to be a part of this race, and then to have the fastest time in the class is awesome,” JT said. “If I could send in my entry fee for next year today I would.”
