all Corvette Pace Cars... Bring
your car back home to Indy!
marks the historic 100th Anniversary of the first running
of the Indianapolis 500, and the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway is offering an opportunity for you to participate
in the activities surrounding this momentous occasion.
To help celebrate the history and tradition of this
great event, they will be hosting the 100th Anniversary
Pace Car Reunion, a once-in-a-lifetime event to be held
inside the hallowed grounds of the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway on May 21-22, 2011.
will be accepting only Indianapolis 500 Official
Pace Cars or Track/Festival Cars to participate in their
reunion and if you would like to participate with your
Indianapolis Pace Car, now is the time to submit an
application to participate.
clarify - Because of this Reunion being organized in
honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Indy 500, they
are only going to allow "Indy 500 Pace Cars"
of any brand / model to register and participate in
the show. To clarify even further, if you own a 1978,
86, 95, 98, 03 (with 02 Indy Pace Car decals), 07, or
08 Corvette Pace car produced by GM and sold to the
public, they will allow you to enter. If you own one
of the "specialty" years where no replicas
were made, but Corvette was the Pace car (ie. 2004,
05, 06) you are welcome. Additionally, if you own a
Corvette that was used as a "Festival or track/event"
car during one of the Indy 500 races at the Speedway
(like 1990, 2002, 03, 04, 05, 06, 09, 10 to name a few)
you are included. They are not going to allow "other"
Pace cars, like those used at Daytona, or even the "Brickyard
400" to participate.
you have any further questions, please contact the Speedway
directly for guidance on if your vehicle is included
or not. This is their event and rules, and they can
tell you pretty quickly if you can register or not.
