Lexus IS F CCS-R & Ken Gushi to Compete in Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

For the second year in a row, Lexus will be entering an IS F CCS-R into the Exhibition Class of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, with racecar driver Ken Gushi behind the wheel. Last year, Ken & the IS F CCS-R finished 32nd overall.

To help promote the race, Lexus has partnered up with the Tony Hawk Foundation to create a decal for the IS F CCS-R using the names of 14,000 fans and supporters. Fans will be able to enter their names for inclusion to a Lexus Facebook post, or through Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #Lexus14K.
