Wanna enter? Do so now.

The 90-driver cap for the Pine Mountain HillClimb Presented by Summit Racing and Grassroots Motorsports has nearly been reached, as MotorsportReg shows 81 souls entered for the April 22-24 event in Pineville, Kentucky.

Did you catch Summit Racing listed as a presenting partner? As noted by Heyward Wagner, the event lead, Summit Racing offers a one-stop solution for everything a first-time hillclimb participant needs, from the helmet and driving suit to the racing seat and fire-suppression system. Then add in everything else found in its catalog: tires and brakes, consumables and speed parts.

The Pine Mountain HillClimb will be hosted by the East Tennessee Region SCCA, a member of the Appalachian HillClimb Series.

It was easily the most beautiful car at the event last year.

That's Matt Foster's '68 Charger. I'll see what we can dig up.

The idea of running a Charger at an event like that is a bucket-list dream.

Fun fact, I was actually born in Middlesboro, not far from the location of the HillClimb.

I've driven the road they use for the event, and I can confirm that, even at slow speeds, is really fun to drive.

Well, come on by and visit.  I can usually use all the help I can get (first time hill-climber).

I still see some openings, so a bump for the Monday crowd.
