MonaVie’s Tomas Scheckter Leads the Pack at 2010 Indianapolis 500
A little more than midway through the 94th annual Indianapolis 500 on Saturday, May 30, Tomas Scheckter maneuvered into first place. Driving the No. 23 MonaVie EMV car, the world watched live as Tomas held onto the lead for five laps, an impressive ascension considering the South African was in the 20 spot when the green flag dropped.
Accelerating from 20th to 14th place in the race’s first lap, Tomas looked to be in top form handling the MonaVie EMV machine. He capitalized on his initial success throughout the race, finally surpassing the competition for laps 109 through 113. Unfortunately, bad luck and radio trouble stood in the way of Scheckter’s first Indy 500 victory. Tomas brought the car back in one piece for a 15th-place finish—his fourth-best career finish at the Indy 500.
"I had a great car today," Scheckter said after the final lap. "It was a good, solid run. We were a very solid team today, and I think that showed."
MonaVie congratulates Tomas Scheckter on an exceptional performance!
