GM Exec Crashes 2019 Corvette ZR1 Pace Car at Detroit IndyCar Race (Video)

A new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 served as the official pace car for the 2018 Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, but as GM exec Mark Reuss prepared to bring the field around for its first pace lap, the automakerís Vice President of Global Product Development lost control of the 755-horsepower supercar, slamming hard into the wall and forcing the field to come to an immediately halt.





Each year, the IndyCar Belle Isle Grand Prix in Detroit is an important date on the schedule for both the city and Chevrolet. The weekend-long event includes a variety of different forms of auto racing, including trucks, LeMans cars and, of course, Indy Cars, so it draws a massive crowd to the Motor City for what is really one of the most exciting weekends of motorsports in Detroit each year. As you might imagine, with that big crowd comes lots of money, as fans contribute to the local economy not just at the track, but at the hotels and other supporting businesses in the area.
