My family met me at the top last year. They had no problem finding a spot near the finish to see me, BUT they had to wait in line at the entrance to the Pikes Peak Highway for almost an hour just to pay to drive up. Then they have to park at Devil's Playground and take a shuttle the final three miles to the top. They barely made it to see me finish(I am not fast). So you need to give yourself plenty of time to get there.
