Indianapolis Motor Speedway unveils 500 Festival cars

Last week I photographed the unveiling of the 500 Festival cars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These aren’t pace cars but rather the “official” vehicle used by race/track officials and VIPs around Indy to promote the Indianapolis 500 in the weeks leading up to the race. Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard was there to drive a Chevrolet Volt pace car and he seemed to be in good spirits after the Indiana RFRA “fix” was signed into law earlier in the day:
