Racer Rhys Millen goes to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this weekend with one goal in mind–break the 10-minute barrier for the run up the 14,110-foot mountain.

If successful, Millen would break the record of 10:01.408 held by Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima, who will be there this year to defend his record. A good run will also put Millen in the company of his dad, Rod Millen, who made the run in 10:04.06 in 1994.

Millen has been prepping his purpose-built race car, powered by a Hyundai V6. Here is video of Millen and his team preparing for the run on June 27.
