    The upcoming 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be led by a 2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition pace car. This marks the ninth time a Camaro has paced the Indy 500. Four Abalone White 2017 Camaro SS vehicles will be on hand to support the race.


Commenting on Chevy's participation, Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development and Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, said, “Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500 have a long, storied history and it’s an honor to mark the respective milestones of the Indy 500 race and the Camaro simultaneously. It’s also a privilege to have Roger Penske perform the driving duties, as his team has helped Chevrolet earn four consecutive IndyCar manufacturer titles since 2012.”



Team Penske is the most successful racing team to have run the Indy 500. Last year, the top four finishers were Chevy-powered, led by race-winner and Team Penske driver Juan Pablo Montoya.
