Amazing Rally Race in the Gymkhana Drifting Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.
