Long Beach, Calif. – September 10, 2010 – Formula DRIFT Round 7: Title Fight tickets are on-sale now.

The 149-year-old Mt. Washington Auto Road in Gorham, New Hampshire has seen the likes of horses and carriages, camels, people, bicycles and most famously, competition race cars. Yesterday, traveling at an average speed of nearly 72 miles per hour in a Subaru rally car, four-time Rally America National Champion Travis Pastrana made sure the project moniker, Red Bull Speed Chasers, lived up to its name. He reached the summit faster than anyone else in history by clocking an officially timed run of 6 minutes 20.47 seconds, besting the previous record by more than twenty seconds. Amazingly, Pastrana achieved the impressive time on his first-ever high-speed run to the summit. Pastrana has effectively thrown down the gauntlet in advance of the legendary Mt. Washington “Climb to the Clouds” Automobile Hillclimb, which will take place in 2011 after a 10-year hiatus.
