Pikes Peak 1927 Joe Unser Sr -Graham Paige -Princess Power w-Penrose Trophy

Pikes Peak represents the ragged edge of motorsport, guys slide their cars around gravel corners at 100+mph with nothing but a cliff on one side and a wall on the other.

It just amazes me that there isn’t a fatality rate of 90%.
