NASCAR turns its eye towards Fernando Alonso IndyCar rookie test (video)


As NASCAR teams prepare to make the trek to Talladega for this Sunday’s Geico 500, some of their attention took a slight detour Wednesday.

That’s because two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso took part in his first IndyCar rookie test in preparation for this month’s 101st running of the Indianapolis 500.

Even though it was the first time Alonso has ever been in an Indy car and also his first time on an oval, one thing was for certain: the man knows how to drive, reaching 222.548 mph and passing his rookie test with flying colors.
