Hill Climb legend made 40th and final trip up Pikes Peak Sunday

A Pikes Peak International Hill Climb legend has made his final mark on the mountain.

Randy Schranz raced his way to the top of pikes peak Sunday for the 40th and final time in his career.

The 66-year old had a time of 10:35, good for a fourth place finish in the Open Division and 20th overall.

He said the moment didn't sink in until race day.

"As soon as i left the start line I started thinking - this is my last time up, you better not screw up," said Schranz. "So I didn't think it was good or bad but it set me down for a bit. I must have drove pretty reasonable and I didn't get in trouble and I made it so it was good."

Randy's son Layne is also an accomplished Hill Climb driver. Layne finished in 15th place, five spots ahead of dad.
