Gee! With all the PC stuff going on, I thought it would be a "TOYOTA CAMARY"

 Actually, Indy only uses US made cars, but with Toyota plants in six states, there may be a Camry Pace Car sooner than we think...   ;)  ???  ::)

Chevy and Olds (?) have dominated the pace car market this century.  Them Mustang guys are way over due....

I really thought the 2015 Mustang would have gotten the nod..

Wasn't the Toyota Space Car a great sight at Daytona ? Times two for the second pack ?

Thought I would hurl, especially when I noticed it was a ForDor. My (or any) Z11 would have looked better, even if you don't like Dover and Hugger combos.

Oldsmobile had 8 pace cars but a variety of models. One of my all time favorites and I hear Helio's as well.
