This year's Indy 500 Pace Car is the 2013 60th Anniversary Corvette ZR1

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway today announced that the 2013 Corvette ZR1 is the official pace car of the 96th Indy 500 race. The 2013 Corvette is outfitted in its 60th Anniversary package.

This is the 11th Corvette to serve as the official pace car but it will be the first time the 638-hp ZR1 has lead the pack.

I figured it was going to be a 60th edition, but I am surprised that it is a ZR1. Guess there won't be any factory replicas this year.

I suppose the parade car Camaros will be the collectibles this year.

If GM can find a way to make some money by slapping stickers on a corvette they'll do it.

look how well that worked for the IROC- take a Z28, put IROC badging on it and sell it for $5k more than the Z28 would have been.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.
