When the green flag drops on the 105th Indianapolis 500 later this month, a 2021 Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray Convertible will lead the 33-car field.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway today unveiled the pace car that will lead the pack on May 30.
IMS says the Arctic White Stingray will be the first convertible since 2008 to pace the iconic race.
“The 2021 Corvette Stingray hardtop convertible is such a world-class performance car that’s a perfect match to lead the talented field of 33 drivers to the green flag in ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles. “We continue to be grateful for our strong, enduring partnership with Chevrolet and its many contributions to the success of our events.”
This is the 32nd time a Chevrolet has led the field and the 18th time a Corvette has paced the Indy 500 since 1978.
