The Indianapolis 500 is getting back-to-back Corvette pace cars. After a Corvette Grand Sport led the pack last year, a Corvette ZR1 will lead this year. The ZR1's participation means that it will be the 15th Corvette to pace the Indy 500. It will also be the 29th Chevy to do so.

He slammed head-on into the safety barriers.
