This may be old news to some of you, but for those who haven't seen the video of Travis Pastrana covering Mt. Washington Auto Road in 6 minutes, 20 seconds and change, it is worth 4 minutes or so of your time.
Sure, there are murmurs that having a codriver, turn-by-turn directions being relayed to him, longer paved roads, and a rally prepped WRX make his run incomparable to the previous record time set 27 years ago. But hold your skepticism, appreciate that technology advances, and remember that records are made to be broken.
