Indianapolis, Indiana – A 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS will be the pace car for the Indianapolis 500, marking the sixth time a Camaro has led the event.
“We’ve enjoyed a great partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway throughout the years, and we are proud to once again have the privilege of pacing the Indianapolis 500 in a Camaro,” said Jim Campbell, general manager of Chevrolet.
Camaro first paced the race in 1967, the year of the model’s debut. It was also selected in 1969, 1982, 1993 and 2009. The new model features an Inferno Orange Metallic paint scheme with White Diamond rally stripes, a modern interpretation of the original rally stripe that debuted on the 1969 pace car. Among its special features is an all-new front grille insert that Chevrolet plans to offer as a future Camaro accessory.
