The Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack at the Colorado Springs Airport will return this summer. Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution, in conjunction with the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation and The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, announced this week that the second running of the event will take place June 26 and 27 as part of Pikes Peak Speedweek.
Airstrip Attack is a half-mile side-by-side roll race and trap speed competition featuring hundreds of the fastest, most powerful street cars in the nation. The Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack allows participants to come together at a commercial airport and compete for the title of “Mile High Victor.”
New in 2015, according to a news release, will be a motorcycle class and simultaneous races on two runways.
“The airport is very excited to be hosting the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack for a second year to showcase our airport and community,” Colorado Springs Airport Aviation Director Dan Gallagher said.
Thousands of automotive and speed enthusiasts are expected to be in attendance as dozens of the industry’s top manufacturers, personalities and performance and lifestyle organizations will be present, the release reads.
“With the success of last year, we’re really ramping it up for 2015,” said Shift-S3ctor co-founder Ryan Fisher.
“We created the pro/am class to allow participants to register at an entry-level price point so they can come out and engage in side-by-side roll racing in a safe environment,” said Revvolution.com president and co-organizer Ryan Randels. “Essentially, we are doubling the size and scope of the event.” Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack takes place the Friday and Saturday leading up to the world’s premier hill climb and the nation’s second oldest motorsports event behind the Indy 500 — The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
