GM exec Mark Reuss apologizes after crashing Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 pace car

The 2018 Detroit Grand Prix of Belle Isle was halted by a crash before the race even started — and it had nothing to do with one of the IndyCar drivers. The race was delayed by 27 minutes after the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 pace car drove into a wall during the parade lap. General Motors executive vice president of global product development Mark Reuss was behind the wheel. Both the driver and passenger Mark Sand, an IndyCar official, were unharmed and exited the vehicle after the incident.
