1971 Dodge Challenger 383 cu. in. Indy Pace Car, supplied by Palmer Dodge of Indianapolis.
Eldon Palmer, owner of the dealership, drove the pace car. He put an orange safety cone by the track exit during practice runs so he knew where to start braking and come off the track. At the beginning of the first lap he went to pull off, but someone had taken away the cone. That caused him to brake to late, he drove into the the photographers stand injuring 29 people, 2 were seriously injured.
The car was untouched until a few years ago when it was restored.
