Castroneves Pulls April Fools' Prank Before Race

REV Group, Team Penske's Newest Sponsor, Captures Prank

PHOENIX, AZ --(Marketwired - April 01, 2016) - REV Group, Inc., Team Penske's newest sponsor, helped Helio Castroneves, a three-time Indianapolis 500 winner, capture one of IndyCar's ultimate April Fools' pranks -- exactly one day before the Phoenix Grand Prix, slotted for 8:30 p.m. EST Saturday, April 2 under the bright lights of Phoenix International Raceway.

During the prank, REV cameras captured Castroneves laid up on the couch of his new American Coach, a REV luxury coach unveiled to the driver in March, as he faked an ankle injury. Here's the video
