5/30/2011 - IndyCar

INDIANAPOLIS -- Tanner Foust set a new world record by jumping 332 feet in a Pro 2 truck Sunday at the Indianapolis 500.

Foust is a professional stunt driver whose identity was kept secret until after the stunt was completed.

He rolled down a bright orange ramp replicating the Hot Wheels' V-Drop.

The stunt took place in the fourth turn of the 2.5-mile oval track. Foust broke Johnny Greaves' previous world mark of 301 feet for a four-wheel vehicle.

The 37-year-old Foust and others spent months practicing the jump.
