the 2006 Indianapolis 500 race, Corvettes (and Chevrolet
SSR vehicles) were used as official support vehicles,
more commonly referred to as "Festival" or
"Track Vehicles". The LeMans Blue Corvette
Convertibles had Titanium Interiors and Gray Convertible
Tops. (The SSR's were Redline Red).
were the Event cars made this year??? After the
Speedway received the vehicles, Graphics were then applied
to complement the official Corvette Pace Car.
