Day Five of the 2011 Indianapolis 500 practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway consisted of no track activity, but a lot of “planking”.
At first I was wondering if this was some sort of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides publicity stunt, but as it turns out, planking is laying flat with your arms to the side.
So since we don’t have any speeds to report today, here’s our top ten list (plus a few extras) of today’s plank photos.
#10 – John Andretti
#9 – Wade Cunningham
#8 – KV Racing: E.J. Viso, Takuma Sato, Tomas Scheckter, Tony Kanaan
#7 – Raphael Matos
#6 – Will Power and Ryan Briscoe
#5 – Scott Dixon
#4 – James Hinchcliffe
#3 – Arie Luyendyk Jr.
#2 – Tony Kanaan
#1 – Tomas Scheckter
Let’s hope the rain holds off tomorrow so we can stop the planking and get to driving!
