Heavy snowfalls can occur at Pikes Peak on Saturday in summer, which can make one of the oldest car races in the USA roar.
The National Weather Service predicted that it would likely snow on the weekend at Pikes Peak Summit. Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Trucks can have 70% snow on Saturday evenings and 80% snow on Sunday evenings.
Still, the staff said the race, which starts at 7:30 a.m., will continue as planned.
“We are ready to race on schedule,” said event coordinator Lisa Hate. “We won’t cancel due to the weather.”
The 12-mile or more race, held on the last Sunday in June each year, began in 1912 and became the second oldest car race in the country.
Heavy rains are expected throughout southern Colorado over the weekend, leading to snowfalls. Colorado Springs residents are expected to experience thunderstorms on Sunday, with a 70% chance of some rainfall.
