Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey will drive the Chevy Corvette Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500 race, coming up on May 27th. We covered the unveiling of the Pace Car back in February.
Dempsey isn’t a stranger to the race track. He’s co-owner of the Vision Racing Team. Joie Chitwood, president of IMS said he had developed a bond with racing and the track.
“So he truly understands and appreciates the pageantry, prestige and tradition of the month of May and the Indianapolis 500,” he said.
On a related note, dealers are still waiting to see the Pace Car constraint lifted for ordering a Corvette. This means we’re still waiting to get the package, long after it appeared as an option. Why not capture the peaked interest of the customer by having them available for us shortly after race time?
