- About this Video
- Rhys Millen returned to Pikes Peak with the goal of setting the record up the 12.4-mile course and breaking the elusive 10-minute mark in the final year of the road comprising pavement and gravel. Throughout the week, his Red Bull Hyundai Genesis RM580 was consistently fastest up all sectors, and in his official run, Rhys kept up his pace until a brake issue compromised his quest for the sub-10-minute run. Even with the brake issue, Rhys finished second with a time of 10:09.24 in the "Race to the Clouds." Meanwhile, Rhys' dad, Rod, won the 2WD Time Attack class with a time of 11:04.91, piloting Rhys' Formula Drift Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
Rhys Millen raced up the legendary mountain in Colorado in a world record 9 minutes and 46.164 seconds. Check out the in-car video of the record run.
