Chevy Corvette ZR1 will pace the Indy 500

Chevrolet's 2019 Corvette ZR1 is the official Pace Car for the 2018 Indianapolis

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 Indy Pace Car does not veer away from its production roots as it still comes factory stock parts / components. "The ZR1 is the most powerful and fastest Corvette ever made".

You know it'll be an interesting Indianapolis 500 when the pace auto has more horsepower than the racecars do.

This year marks the 102nd running of the Indy 500, and it will be the 29th time that Chevy has led the field in the form of a pace auto.

Now, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 will serve as the official pace vehicle of this year's Indy 500. "It's the ideal choice to pace 'The Greatest Spectacle in Racing'".

The ZR1 and 14 other Corvette pace cars were on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway earlier this week in recognition of the nameplate's legacy.

After what felt like years of buildup, Chevrolet finally revealed the Corvette ZR1 in November of last year. A few years later, Gaston Chevrolet won the 1920 race.

KXIP riding on Gayle's knock
Mujeeb conceded just 27 runs in his four overs and thus didn't allow any of the Sunrisers batsmen to score freely. FIFTY! Chris Gayle continues his "Gayle-storm" as he gets to his 23rd IPL fifty, his second in this season.

"Chevrolet and IMS enjoy one of the longest-running and strongest bonds in motorsports", said IMS President J. Douglas Boles.

Chevrolet noted the company has special ties to the race as the brand was founded in 1911 which is the same year as the inaugural Indy 500.

Still, if you want to see this ZR1 in action, you'll have to be in Indianapolis on Sunday, May 27 for the 102nd running of the Indy 500.

Chevrolet is pursuing its seventh consecutive IndyCar manufacturer championship this year, building on a successful 2017 season that saw 10 wins out of 17 races.

The race also will be televised live on ABC, with the pre-race show starting at 11 a.m. EDT.
