Indy 500 drivers list their milk preferences for victory lane (Picture)
If you have ever watched the conclusion of an Indy 500 race and taken in some of the festivities of victory lane, you know that milk is a huge part of the celebration. Drivers pouring milk all over themselves after winning the biggest Indy car race of the year is a tradition that dates back 80 years, but I never appreciated the type of effort that goes into keeping it alive.
Apparently the drivers have a choice in fat content. Check out this photo that ESPN’s Lindsay Czarniak shared on Twitter Sunday morning:
It appears Helio Castroneves would give up sex for a year for a party headlined by two percent milk. Most of the drivers prefer two percent, while others like Townsend Bell and Conor Daly don’t care how much fat is in the milk they chug and shower themselves in — they just want to get to the Victory Circle. The real question is would they know the difference. I have my doubts.
