INDIANAPOLIS – A red 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe will be the official pace car of the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500.

The pace car will be driven by General Motors President Mark Reuss.

This marks the 17th time a Corvette has served as the Pace Car, starting in 1978, and the 31st time a Chevrolet has led the field dating back to 1948 when a Fleetmaster Six convertible held the honor.

The Stingray was named the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year.

This will be the first race held outside of May when it runs on Sunday, Aug. 23.
