In 1920 a new name flashed across the American Automobile world. The Lexington Motor Co. entered two short wheelbase Race Cars in the 1920 Pikes Peak Hill Climbing Race. The Lexington Race Cars place first and second finishing with a time of 22 minutes and 5 seconds and 22 minutes and 30 seconds winning the Penrose Trophy.

The Pikes Peak Hill Climbing Race is held on a road leading to the top of Pikes Peak. A road that rises from an elevation of 5,000 to 14,109 feet or 3 miles in the 12 1/2 mile course. The first race was held in 1915 and the American Automobile Association sponsored the race starting in 1920.

Otto Loesche and Albert Cline were the drivers of the two Ansted powered Lexington racers. The Lexington Motor Co. also won the race in 1924 with drivers Otto Loesche, Clarence Lawton, and Albert Cline sweeping the first three places.
