Real Life Hotwheels

This Memorial Day you might want to tune in to watch the Indianapolis 500. Well, the opening ceremonies not the race itself. To celebrate the event’s 100th anniversary, we will get to witness a 3,500 pound truck get launched over 300 feet in the air. The 850 horse power vehicle will start atop a ramp that is 100 feet high and (hopefully) reach speeds of over 90mph in order to successfully make the record setting distance.
For the guy sitting in the truck when this goes down I hope it doesn’t work like my old Hotwheels tracks I had as a kid. Despite taking hours to set up and following instructions for assembly my, cars would always fly through the air and come to a crashing demise.
