INDIANAPOLIS – Former IndyCar Series driver Sarah Fisher will lead the field to the green flag for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. She’s set to drive the 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition Pace Car.
Fisher, who remains the fastest woman in Indianapolis 500 history, drove in the race nine times between 2000 and 2010. She was also the first woman to win the pole position for a major North American open-wheel event, for the INDYCAR SERIES race in 2002 at Kentucky Speedway. She still holds the record for the fastest four-qualifying speed of 229.439 mph, which was set in 2002.
Currently, Fisher co-owns with her husband, Andy O’Gara, the successful Speedway Indoor Karting facilities in Speedway, Indiana, and Daytona Beach, Florida, and is the mother of two children.
“I am humbled and proud to become the official Pace Car driver for the 106th Indianapolis 500 and to represent the hard work and development that Chevrolet puts into these fantastic pieces of automobile advancement and technology.”
