2005, Chevrolet Corvette was again chosen to perform
"Official Pace Car" duties. A Red and Silver
Corvette Convertible with painted graphics was used
for this role.
Chevrolet SSR's were used for Festival Committee and
eight Red Corvette Convertibles, with simple graphics
(event logo on door, "An American Revolution"
windshield header, and several IMS Wing and Wheel decals)
were at the Speedway.
Corvettes played a minimal role in the race this year,
but were part of a promotion called the "An American
Revolution - Chevrolet Dealership Sales Challenge".
They were used for laps on the track, then awarded to
the eight winning dealers in the country who exceeded
their sales challenge.
