2019 Indy Pace Car
A Corvette has paced the Indy 500 field 16 times in the past — more than any other model — and 2020 marks the 31st time a Chevrolet will lead the field, beginning in 1948 with a Chevrolet Fleetmaster Six convertible. Last year, the final year of the seventh-generation Corvette, the pace car was the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport driven by retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. The following photos document the generations of Corvette pace cars that have led 11 rows of race cars to the green flag for the start of a grueling 500-mile event known as “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
