We knew from the second Red Bull announced Travis Pastrana’s record-setting Mt. Washinton run that video would soon follow. And here it is.

Piloting his Subaru WRX rally car, Pastrana not only claimed the record, but demolished the old time by 22 seconds with a 6:20.47 run – on his first try.

Check out the video after the jump for plenty of high production quality excitement as Pastrana races up the 100 turn 7.6 mile course, reaching the 6,288-foot peak.
