The Corvette ZR1 was the pace car for this weekend's Detroit IndyCar Grand Prix. Mark Reuss, GM's top product development exec and a huge race fan and proponent of motorsports, was driving the car on the pace laps when it went wrong.

Well, that's embarrassing!

How many other times have pace cars crashed in a race?? This is the first I've ever heard of!

You mean ex-top product development exec, don't you?

Looks like he used a little too much right foot going into the corner. Should have left the real racing the real drivers.

Drifting - there is a time and place for it. This was neither.

Crashing the Pace Car may have been the second most embarrassing video of the weekend but no one tops the FBI Agent in Denver....
