In this year’s “Month of May” series, on each day leading up to the Indianapolis 500 on May 26, a different topic about the race or about Indianapolis will be discussed. Each of these topics will be ranked to create special “fields of 33” regarding the Indy 500. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you learn something about Indianapolis and the Indy 500, the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
The pace car was an innovation in motor racing that began with the Indy 500. Since the 1911 race, a car (or van or truck) has brought the field around to the green flag. The pace cars have been memorable over the years due to their style, their color, their flair, or simply just their uniqueness. So we thought, what if we had a field of JUST pace cars? Why not? Check out our Field of 33 Coolest Indy 500 Pace Cars.
