Over The Fence: Corvette to Pace 2007 Allstate Brickyard 400

Maybe through the fence is a better way to describe how we came across this photo of the Corvette Pace Car Festival Car for the Allstate Brickyard 400. IndyAndy had a chance to visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway earlier this month when he spied these Velocity Yellow Corvette Convertibles in Gasoline Alley. The Corvettes feature the Allstate Brickyard 400 logos as well as the horizontal graphics that start at the front tires and sweep down the side. A graphic that appears to be the Chevrolet Bowtie graces the hood.
