Corvette is a familiar sight at the Brickyard
Chevrolet Press Release – 05-08-2014
DETROIT – A 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible like the one above will serve as the pace car for the inaugural Verizon IndyCar Series Grand Prix of Indianapolis this weekend.
“Chevrolet and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway have such a long history together, so it is exciting to be able to produce another ‘first’ at the famed Brickyard,”
said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
Although this weekend’s event will be the first Grand Prix of Indianapolis, it won’t be the first time a Corvette has led the field at Indianapolis Motor Speedway: A Corvette has been a pace car for the Indianapolis 500 a record 12 times, starting in 1978. A 2014 Corvette Stingray paced the Indianapolis 500 field last year.
