General Motors North America President Mark Reuss will be setting the pace for the IndyCar action today and tomorrow in a 2014 C7 Chevy Corvette Stingray — as it’s the official safety car of the “Dual in Detroit,” part of the 2013 Belle Isle Grand Prix.
When Reuss isn’t leading GM’s North American operations, he’s an avid racing fan, and it’s certainly a great time to be a Chevrolet racing fan for IndyCar, as a Chevrolet-powered race car took the top four racing spots during last weekend’s Indianapolis 500. A 2014 Corvette Stingray paced that race, as well.
The first IndyCar Series race of the weekend is set to fire up at 3:50 PM ET today (Saturday, June 1st, 2013) in Belle Isle, while Race No. 2 will begin tomorrow, exactly 24 hours after the first race.
