The Hill Climb pumps millions into the local economy. This year’s race made history – for the first time competitors raced through the 156 turns and up the 12.42-mile stretch on a fully paved highway. The paved road created a lot of advance buzz and tickets sold at double the rate as previous years.

In 2006, the last time an economic impact study was done for the race, Hill Climb had a $4.4 million economic impact on the city, according to a study by David Bamberger & Associates. Then, there were 1,900 spectators and 150 media representatives. Since then, the race has grown to 6,000 spectators and 300 media representatives. The Bamberger report projected the race to have a $60 million economic impact from 2005 to 2014.
