Indy 500 Corvettes Help Kickoff Festival on the Circle

The annual kickoff to the 500 Festival was held today at Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. Despite the soggy weather, a contingent of 2009 Festival Corvette convertibles made their appearance on the Circle. For the first time in five years Corvette will not be handling pace car duties.

This year the all new 2010 Chevy Camaro is sporting the cool paint job while the Festival Corvette’s graphics are bit more subtle, if you can call a Corvette with a huge Indy 500 logo on the side subtle. The Festival Corvettes are used to shuttle dignitaries and track officials around to various 500-related events and then are usually sold.
