1998 marked the fourth time the Chevrolet Corvette had been selected as the Indy 500 Pace Car.  Other than mandatory safety features, the Corvette needed no modifications to meet pace car specifications.

Golfing great Greg Norman was scheduled to drive the 1998 pace car, but was forced to withdraw due to recent shoulder surgery.  1963 Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones was selected to fill in for Norman.

The 1998 Corvette’s color-shifting “radar blue” paint and bright yellow wheels presented some of the most extreme looks for an Indy pace car.  The car is powered by the stock 5.7 liter LS1 V-8 engine and features an Active Handling chassis control system.
