PIKES PEAK, CO - Leonard Vahsholtz will ride off into the sunset with his 18th career Pikes Peak International Hill Climb title.

Vahsholtz, who is the PPIHC's all-time winningest driver, won the Pikes Peak Open division with a time of 11:30. That time is a personal best for the legend from Woodland Park, CO.

Vahsholtz has announced he will retire from the Hill Climb and will concentrate on helping his son Clint race in the annual event.

Clint did not have as good of a day as his father. His record setting run of 11-straight Super Stock Car titles came to an end today. He encountered mechanical problems in the #18 car and was forced to pull over above the picnic grounds.

Bobby Regester took the title from Clint Vahsholtz with a time of 11:46. It is his first win since 1995.
