Popular toy brand Mattel smashes yet another world record. Mattel's Hot Wheels created the world's longest toy track in history at the Indianapolis 500 Saturday, May 25th, to celebrate its World's Best Driver Championship event.

The racetrack is one-mile long with four lanes. Kids were invited from all over the US to race four toy-size cars around the track.

Christopher Bienusa, a 12-year-old from Alexandria, Minnesota won the race. He is coached by racing legends Mario and John Andretti.

More than 1,000 pieces of custom-made Hot Wheels track were used to build the longest track. Alexandria Industries manufactured nearly 4,700 pounds of aluminum extrusions to withstand outdoor elements such as heat and rain.
