Diners, Drive-ins and Dives persona Guy Fieri is making more news with garages these days than kitchens. The Food Network host, who recently had his Lamborghini Gallardo stolen and then recovered in a teen's storage container, has been selected to drive the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 pace car at the Indy 500 this year.
Guy's an admitted car fan, and he should feel at home in the ZR1; he owns seven Chevrolet models that span the decades from 1968 to 2011, and a Cadillac Escalade ESV. He'll be pacing the field in the 638-horsepower special edition Arctic White coupe on Sunday, May 27 at noon EST.

      Have no idea who this crazy haired douche is, I guess eat burritos or something. All I know is hope his Corvette doesn't get stolen too, sheesh.

      If you look up douche bag in the dictionary, this guys' picture is right there. That terrible hair, sunglasses on the back of the head, obscene amount of ugly rings and bracelets. Yeah, douche bag!

      "Guy's an admitted car fan, and he should feel at home in the ZR1; he owns seven Chevrolet models that span the decades from 1968 to 2011, and a Cadillac Escalade ESV" Damn, a Cadillac Escalade ES-freakin'-V!!! What a car fan!

      Geez gang! Jealous much? Guy would be in my top 20. They should get the host from American Truckers to fly a semi 'round the track. He's crazy intense!

        Apparently someone AB has a hard-on. Search his name in the search up top.

      Why?? Because he rivals that ass Gordon Ramsay as being the most annoying food show host?? It seems that might be the only qualifier he has to drive the Pace Car.

      What qualifies him to drive the pace car...his enthusiasm? I thought that after the bad pace car crash at Indy in 1971 they started requiring drivers with some experience.

      Somebody got Fireball Head confused with Fireball Roberts. Is he going to wear his sunglasses backwards while driving?
