The Chevy exec driving the pace car should have left traction control on, I guess smile

Looked like a new ZR1?

Someone needs to go to high speed driving school. Or maybe not.

This is why I don't like celebrities driving the pace car. Normally Servia drives the pace car.

This is not the first time, back in what '98 in CART the pace car hit the barrier during caution.

At the 1971 Indy 500 they pile drived the Pace Car into the photographers stand, after screaming down pit lane, and hurt a bunch of people in the process.

I really love IndyCar but sometimes they stoop to ARCA levels of absurdity with random incidents.

In F-1 back in 2002 Nick Heidfeld tried to squeeze in between the Medical Car and the wall. He didn't make it, and took the drivers door off in the process.
