Pikes Peak

History

  • Best Time: 10:05.006 – 2020
  • Best Finish: 2020 – Unlimited division champion
  • His first year on the mountain was 2019 when he scored a disappointing DNF.
  • Mechanical problems plagued him during practice and qualifying sessions in 2020, forcing him to start at the back of the field. As the last car of the day, Yoshihara left the start line in questionable weather, spun out on his way to the Summit, and still won the Unlimited crown.
  • 2021 – Member of inaugural Fast 15 qualifiers
  • He ran a shortened course in 2021
  • This is Dai’s 4th run on Pikes Peak.
