Hello Camaro Friends,
I live in Indianapolis, and great news was released today from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the local TV new broadcasts - The 2010 Camaro will be the Pace Car for the 93rd running of the Indy 500!

The following are some “Cliff Notes” from the news release issued today by the Speedway. I am sure you will start to see and read more about the 2010 Indy Pace Car in the coming weeks in automotive publications.
"2009 marks the fifth time the Chevrolet Camaro has been selected to pace the Indianapolis 500 (1967, 1969, 1982, 1993, 2009). It will be the 44th time a General Motors vehicle has paced "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," with 20 by a Chevrolet. Powered by the 6.2-liter LS3 all-aluminum Chevy V-8, the all-new 2010 Camaro produces 426 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 420 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. It features a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and 3.45 axle ratio".
I can't wait for Indy!!
