This the first "green" car to lead off the Indy 500 race in the history of the sport. The car that gets the task of doing so is the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 E85 sports car. In fact, this car will also be produced for consumers to purchase with a total number of 500 being produced with both coupes and convertibles.
Who gets to do the first "pacing" around the track? Mr Emerson Fittipaldi , a former Indy 500 winner champion, gets the job. The winner of the Indy 500 gets a cool 2.5 million.
