                   What goes better together then cars and drinking....wait, maybe that came out wrong.  How about just kicking back and talking about cars and the automotive world while you enjoy a stiff drink, tasty brew, or a fancy cocktail?  Awww thats better.  We will attempt to cover all those bases in this show we present to you on Fridays!  What the hell is going in new cars and the automotive culture in general?  Find out with Matt and Jay every week, oh yeah and enjoy a night cap:)

This week we talk about the "the hill" better known as Pikes Peak where every year hundreds of vehicles ranging from super bikes to wildly modified semi tractors try to rocket up the 12 mile 156 turn run to the summit faster than any in their class. The standing record is 8:13.878 set in 2013 by 9 time WRC champ Sebastien Loeb.  While we don't expect that to fall, we do expect some amazing action out here.  We run into current Pirelli World Challenge pilot Mike Skeen, and talk about his attempt this year on the hill in his insane Nissan GTR (Pikes Peak Special) - Braking up hill, and packing a parachute

We end the episode talking about our favorite summer time brews in the venerable full body IPAs.  If it was good enough for pirates it's good enough for us!
