Indy 500 pace car spotted in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – An old beauty made a stop in South Bend.  

ABC57 News found an Indianapolis 500 pace car from 1962 sitting outside of the Studebaker Museum.

It's a 1962 Studebaker Lark and it was made in South Bend.  The local Studebaker Driver's Club was at the museum for a meeting and brought their cars.

We are less than a month away from the 96th running of the big race. This year's Indy 500 will include many events, like Legend’s Day, a golf outing, and of course a car festival.

There's also supposed to be some type of tribute for the late Dan Wheldon who won last year's race.
