World Record Jump Attempt Set For Indianapolis 500
The iconic Indianapolis 500 will celebrate its 100th anniversary this Memorial Day weekend, but a crew of stunt drivers, engineers and construction experts is banking on a side spectacle that'll amaze fans as much as the race itself.
A dedicated crew of dozens has secretly spent the past few weeks in Southern California building, testing and tweaking a custom-built truck as well as a life-sized version of the Hot Wheels toy track set so many of us enjoyed of us as kids. And if all goes according to spec, the Pro2-style truck (driven by a masked stunt driver) will jump across a gap more than 302 feet in length, breaking the world record for largest leap by a four-wheeled vehicle.The Presurfer
