If you have ever been to the northeastern United States, well, you might have noticed cars driving around with the bumper stickers that read, This Car Climbed Mt. Washington.

It comes with a toll to drive the road up to the highest peak in the region, so they have become rather ubiquitous. And one man has done it faster than any other.

That man is Travis Pastrana,  he smashed the record this past weekend driving his 600-hp Subaru WRX STI rally car up this hill in 5 minutes and 44.72 seconds.

That is 24 seconds faster than his teammate David Higgins, who set a record at 6:9.09 in 2014, slid off course trying to beat his own time this time around.

It is yet another feather in Pastrana’s cap, having won eight X Games gold medals in the motocross and several silvers – including one in the rally car.

He’s won the Rally America championship four times and numerous motocross titles have competed in everything from NASCAR to rallycross.

I can’t say enough how fun these vehicles are to drive, and thank Subaru for providing one to me. And I hope this record can stand for a little while, said Travis Pastrana. This road is such the challenge, it is probably the toughest road to drive flat-out in the world.
