The 2009 Indianapolis 500 Corvette Festival cars

For 2009, thirty-five Silver with Black top Corvette Convertibles were sent to the Speedway to assist Camaro by providing Festival committee support and carrying drivers in the Festival parade.

A Silver Camaro Coupe paced the race, and additional Camaro early production "2010" model coupes were sent to be "track cars" for the 2009 race

While the "real" Camaro Pace cars had high tech painted graphics, these Camaros had similar / simpler vinyl graphics applied at the Speedway to what you see on the Covettes.

A handful of Corvettes were retained and rebadged for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard NASCAR race held later in the year. As is tradition, the rest of the cars were distributed to Indiana Chevrolet dealers and sold to the public shortly after the Indy 500.

All Corvette Festival cars had automatic transmissions again this year since they were used for IPL 500 Festival Committee member use.

The cars arrived minus graphics, which were applied at the Speedway.
