INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum has announced new dates for the Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Homecoming, now set for Aug. 14-16, one week before of the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
Owners of authentic Indianapolis 500-Mile Race Official Chevrolet Corvette Pace Cars and 500 Festival Corvette Event Cars are invited to register for the homecoming. The general public is welcome to view the classic Corvettes for free – with paid admission to the IMS grounds – in the south lot of the IMS Museum, located just inside the speedway’s gate two off 16th Street.
The Chevrolet Corvette has an indelible connection with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, going back to the first Corvette to pace the Indianapolis 500, the iconic 1978 Corvette C3. Since then, the Corvette has paced The Greatest Spectacle in Racing an additional 15 times, ensuring a diverse collection of American-made, Chevy-powered sports cars.
The event, which takes place on NTT IndyCar Series Fast Friday practice and Crown Royal Armed Forces Qualifying weekend, is limited to the first 150 registered cars. The entry fee is $150 per car and $75 for any additional Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car or 500 Festival Corvette registered by the same owner. Registrants will receive two tickets for “Fast Friday” practice, two tickets for Indianapolis 500 qualifying and additional hospitality.
Seventy-five exclusive event license plates will be available to participants, distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
