Tyspeed + APEX

As a proud sponsor of the Tyspeed racing team, we caught up with driver Tyler Pappas and his crew at New Jersey Motorsports Park as they prepare their BMW M2 race car for the 2019 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Preparing the car for this event has been challenging, but the mountain will present an even greater one. The intimidating mountain stands over 14,000 feet in elevation and the race hosts ~12 miles of intense turns without the safety of guard rails. Follow along as Tyler and his team make their way to Pikes Peak.
