[GALLERY] The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Paces the 101st Indianapolis 500

[GALLERY] 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Paces the 101st Indianapolis 500


As a tradition that continues into its second century, the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 took place on Sunday and leading the pack for a record 14th time was the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Pace Car.

The festivities for the annual race usually kick off on the first of May, but for Corvette fans, the amount of attention paid to this year’s “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” went up a few notches on May 5th after the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was announced to be this year’s official Pace Car.

Normally the official driver of the official pace car is officially announced right around the same time as the car, but the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s festival committee kept us in the dark nearly until race day. Thursday evening before the race, Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ would be announced as the driver ending Rick Conti’s dreams the speculation of who would be driving the Corvette at Indy.

I tuned into the race like a good former Hoosier does on the last Sunday in May, and a stream from ESPN allowed us to grab some screenshots of the action. And when I mean action, I’m talking about those moments when the Corvette Pace Car would hit the track.

Audience figures aren’t out yet, but last year the ABC broadcast averaged 1.28 million viewers not to mention the nearly 350,000 that show up to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and surrounding grounds. That’s a lot of people seeing the Corvette Grand Sport, along with Chevrolet’s Camaro and Silverado, featured on the world’s largest stage. It’s a great feeling of pride to see Corvette and Chevrolet represented so well at the Indianapolis 500.

Here’s our gallery featuring many images of the Corvette Grand Sport Pace Car from the 101st Indianapolis 500.
