IndyCar Race Driver Tony Kanaan calls the Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500 the most important car on the track. And when that car is the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport, how could we disagree?
The official unveiling of the Pace Car for the 103rd Indianapolis 500 happened this Monday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Tony Kanaan was there to pull the cover of the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport which is decked out in Long Beach Red with Blade Silver racing stripes and the distinctive Indy 500 logo on the sides. In the background are 33 matching Corvette Stingray Convertible Festival Cars and a number of Chevy Silverado support vehicles lined the pits.
Local Indianapolis TV station WISH-TV was there and offered this report:
