A Torch Red 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe will serve as the Official Pace Car for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. The car will be driven by General Motors President Mark Reuss. For the first time in the iconic race’s history, it will not be held in the traditional month of May, but will take place on Sunday August 23.
This is the 17th time a Corvette has served as the Official Pace Car and the 31st time a Chevrolet has led the field dating back to 1948 when a Chevrolet Fleetmaster Six convertible led the field. No other brand or vehicle has served as the “500” Pace Car more often than Chevrolet and the Corvette.
