INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis Motor Speedway is still three weeks away from opening up for Grand Prix practice, but there were already cars on the track Wednesday afternoon.

The annual festival car presentation brought out a fleet of black Camaro convertibles replacing the ice blue Camaros of 2013.

The special fully loaded SS model will be seen around the city for the next month advertising the 98th Indianapolis 500.

“Typically, the 500 Festival car ends up being a Camaro and it’s a different one every year,” IMS president Doug Boles said. “This is a great one. It has 400 horsepower and is black on black. This is going to be a fantastic car, decked out to the nines with all the electronic stuff. When people see them around the community, I encourage them to ask whoever’s driving to let them take a look, because that’s what they’re out there for. They’re out there, so people can take a look at these cars.”
