    Sarah Fisher to Drive Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car

    (Indianapolis, IN) - The Indy 500's fastest woman will lead the field to the green on Sunday May 29th when she pilots the 2023 70th Anniversary Edition Corvette Pace Car in the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. 

    Fisher is a natural for the role, serving as a former team owner, driver, and pace car driver for the IndyCar Series but is perhaps better known for her setting the female Indy 500 qualifying lap record set in 2002 at a blistering pace of 229.439mph.  

    Fisher will turn eyes when she brings the highly anticipated 2023 70th Anniversary Corvette across Indy's famous yard of bricks this Memorial Day weekend.  The special edition Corvette will be available for purchase later this summer.  Per Indianapolis Motor Speedway, "this year’s Pace Car is equipped with the available Z07 Performance Package, featuring a carbon fiber rear wing, aerodynamic ground effects, carbon ceramic brakes and more, for maximum track capability.

    With a nod to Corvette’s 70-year history, the Pace Car is a model year 2023 70th Anniversary Edition Z06, finished in a special White Pearl Tri-Coat Metallic paint."  This year's pace car will also feature all the 70th Anniversary amenities that will be available to the general public this summer.  To learn more about the package, you can read about it here: 2023 Corvette 70th Anniversary Package Revealed by GM (corvettestoreonline.com)

    “The Chevrolet Team is proud to pace the Indianapolis 500 for the 33rd time, while celebrating 70 years of Corvette,” said Steve Majoros, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “It’s only fitting the Indianapolis 500 will be the first race the 2023 Corvette Z06 paces, a truly special moment for Corvette and INDYCAR fans around the world. I’m sure Sarah will enjoy driving the 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition, which is an incredible car with the performance to match its great looks.” (IMS)
