ASCEND 2023

July 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am July 2, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Pikes Peak International Raceway and Hot Import Nights are proud to present ASCEND Music & Motorsports Festival powered by XRP Ledger!

ASCEND is a Time Attack Competition with $50,000 in cash prizes! The event will take place on July first and second in 2023, the weekend after the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Alongside the competition, there will be Sprint Racing, drifting, as well as a HIN car show. This expanded event will now feature a Saturday night concert during the evening drift sessions with a drone light show and fireworks! Time Attack competitors will compete in six timed sessions where the first to break the track record, the fastest overall, and the top three in each class will receive a portion of the cash prize. The current production car track record is 53.097 and is held by Feras Qartoumy in his C6 Corvette!
