Chevrolet Racing introduces the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Indianapolis 500 pace car Tuesday, March 25, 2014. Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti will drive the Camaro Z/28 to pace the 98th running of the race on May 25. It’s the eighth time a Camaro has been the pace car, starting in 1967 – and the 25th time a Chevrolet has paced the race. The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is the most track-capable model in its history, building on the legacy of the original SCCA Trans Am-series contender introduced in 1967.

Crash's coverage of anything outside F1, MotoGP and World Superbikes is extremely poor to be honest. While I have a huge interest in MotoGP and WSBK I would also love it if they covered other smaller sports in more detail. At least bothering their backsides to get qualifying and race results up in a timely manner.

Agree Frank! The Indy race report is finally up. But it would be nice if Crash would move a bit faster on the IndyCar action. As usual, it's more interesting than the boring F1 race. Glad Marco Andretti still has his head in one piece.
