The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback is also a racing enthusiasts and team principal at Panther Racing, who will compete in this year’s Indy 500 with two Chevrolet-powered single-seaters driven by J.R. Hildebrand and Townsend Bell.
“As a longtime racing fan and someone who has always followed the Indianapolis 500, the honor to drive the pace car comes as a tremendous thrill,” said Harbaugh. “Doing it in the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray makes it even better. It’s an iconic car leading an iconic race.”
“It’s great to have a true racing fan like Jim Harbaugh drive the Corvette pace car,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “He personifies the Indianapolis 500’s spirit of competition – and he’s a true athlete, just like the all-new Corvette Stingray.”
As a reminder, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will hit US dealerships later this summer with a price tag starting from $51,995, including the $995 destination fee, but excluding tax, title and license.
