Luyendyk Rolls in Vegas

Las Vegas,NV: Arie Luyendyk returned to the site of his last Indy Racing League win, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and turned a lap of 215.83 MPH in his #5 G-Force for Treadway-Hubbard Racing. Luyendyk ran a total of 113 laps as his pre-season testing continued for his quest for a third Indianapolis 500 victory.

"It feels good," said Luyendyk. "We had a fuel mapping problem in Fontana and we got that sorted out right away. The new Chevy motor pulled good and I was flat at 213 MPH in the first 10 laps. From there we just went about our testing and got the data we needed."

Luyendyk will continue testing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Tuesday.
