Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack Announces Details of Event

21 Jun, 2019

Mark your calendars for June 22-23, and don’t miss the half-mile side-by-side trap speed competition that features the fastest stock and modified street cars in the world!

In 2018, more than 7,000 spectators, 60 media outlets, 30 sponsors and 11 vendors gathered at the Colorado Springs Airport. Roughly 1.9 million viewers across the world tuned into the live broadcast to watch 315 die-hard competitors hit the tarmac, making the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack the largest event of its kind in the world.

As technology advances and teams fine-tune their setups for half-mile trap speed competitions, records stand no chance of withstanding the quest of claiming the title of King of the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack. Last year a new world record was set by Underground Racing and a 259.6 mph half-mile pass was etched into the history books.

“The Pikes Peak Airstrip attack is an exciting event and the Colorado Springs Airport is thrilled to serve as the venue for the 6th consecutive year,”said Greg Phillips, director of Aviation for the Colorado Springs Airport. “This is an event to look forward to and we invite the Colorado Springs Community to come out to the airport to enjoy this unique experience and witness history being made.” 

While we look forward to building on the success and momentum of past events, planned airport construction will limit this year’s event to a single runway. This means that there will not be Pro Am runway running for 2019. The spectator layout will also be adjusted to accommodate construction; however, the experience will remain as high-adrenaline as ever.

New for this year, we’re giving 2018 competitors priority for pre-registration. If you pre-registered in 2018, you will be sent a unique code granting you early access to the registration pre-sale. In addition, our tiered competitor pricing will be implemented in order to entice more record setting vehicles, as well as those Pro Am competitors who want to step up their game to center stage.

For a limited time, competitors will be able to take advantage of the new pricing structure. Each tier is limited to 20 cars. Tiers one through four offer a percentage off the registration cost for Pro runway.

·    Tier 1 - 20 Cars @ 40% off

·    Tier 2 - 20 Cars @ 30% off

·    Tier 3 - 20 Cars @ 20% off

·    Tier 4 - 20 Cars @ 10% off

Participant registration will be available starting January 29, 2019, on

Registration is $275 for a single day, $500 for both days.
