World's first ride-along in the 2023 Z06 Corvette (the official pace car of the Indy 500) by Drive615. Massive thank you to Corvette and #teamchevy for the opportunity of a lifetime. Aaron Link took me out on a hot lap on the Indy 500 track and we hit 163 MPH coming out of one of the straight aways. This Z06 is so visceral and just puts a huge smile on my face whenever I am in its presence.

I am so pumped for the race today and am truly honored to be a part of this. Thank you again to Chevrolet and everyone involved including the Indy Car Partners as well as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
