A month ago we received word that retired Gen. Colin Powell would pilot the 2005 Corvette pace car at the start of the race and we was only a part of the pre-race ceremonies that will salute the U.S. troops. There will be a two-way live feed of the race with Camp Victory in Iraq and troops will be taking laps in the back of pickup trucks on the famed brickyard track. The most heart wrenching of all, family members of 43 Indiana troops who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan have been invited to attend the race. The Indy 500 will be broadcast on ABC at 12:00pm EST Sunday, May 29.
