Indy 500: Stewart Posts Fastest Speed of the Month
15 May 1998
Tony Stewart topped the charts once again. Stewart made a run early in the day. He ran a lap at 223.797 mph at 12:26 p.m. It was the fastest lap of the month.
Kenny Brack raised some eyebrows as he toured the Speedway in his A.J. Foyt prepared Powerteam car at a speed of 223.464 mph. Brack's speed came in the heat of the day. He will be considered a legitimate threat for the pole position.
The run for the pole will begin at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. Awards for the pole include $100,000 from PPG Industries.
