Leno in the Hot Seat

lenopacecar.jpgJay Leno is all set for this weekend's Daytona 500. He'll be driving the official Pace car... none other than the Corvette Z06. We previously wrote about the event and have a great selection of pictures to check out. I'm very envious! The LA Times reports:

Leno said he wouldn't charge Chevrolet or its parent, General Motors Corp., an appearance fee despite all the publicity he generates for the automaker. Simply being able to drive the Corvette at high speeds is compensation enough, he said. "They called me and asked, 'Would you like to do it?' " he recalled. "My attitude is, 'Hey, I'm a big car fan, so sure. I would love to do it.' My fee is that I'll get to use some GM vehicles."

Leave it to Leno.
