Hot Wheels At Indy 500 [VIDEO]
Hot Wheels is bringing its miniature world to life at this year’s Indianapolis 500. The toy brand that produces everything from tiny cars to customized tracks will install a 100-foot door with an attached orange ramp at the historic speedway hoping to break the world record jump by a four-wheel vehicle.
The stunt will take place in the fourth turn of Indianapolis Motor Speedway just hours before the May 29 race begins. Company officials expect the driver, whose identity is being kept secret until after the stunt, to break Johnny Greaves’ current world record of 301 feet. The driver could make more than one attempt if necessary and if conditions permit.
