Arie Luyendyk, who owns the record for the fastest Indianapolis 500, turned the fastest unofficial lap in the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Thursday.

The Netherlands-born driver, shaking down his backup Reynard-Ford, took advantage of a warm, breezy afternoon to turn three straight laps over 237 mph - the fastest of which was 237.774. That is quicker than the 237.555 by Scott Brayton during testing last month in a Lola-Menard.
