Drivers' milk preferences at the Indy 500

The kind of milk you choose says a lot about you as a person.

Three hours in a hot car calls for a cold bottle of milk, at the Indianapolis 500 anyway. Nowadays, drivers get to pick the kind of milk they want in case it's them getting doused with the white stuff at the end of the race.

Two percent seems to be the milk of choice, but there are a few holding out for whole milk. A few even put skim on there. No soy or almond milk though. Nobody wants to be the next Emerson Fittipaldi, who upset a lot of people when he went for orange juice after winning it in 1993.
