Last week we found out that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 would be leading the pack at this year's Indy 500. Now, we know who'll be behind the wheel of that ZR1: Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives star chef Guy Fieri

“There are races and then there are races,” Fieri said. “And without a doubt, the Indy 500 is the race that I’ve always wanted to attend. And now, to be driving the Corvette Pace Car … this is going to be unbelievable.”

The selection isn't as out of the blue as most probably think. Guy is actually a huge car collector. His garage is home to a red 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible, a 2011 Chevy Camaro SS convertible, a 2007 Chevy Corvette, a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, a 1967 Chevy C10 pickup, a 2006 Chevrolet Kodiak C4500 4x4, a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500, and a 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV. Now do you see why him and the Corvette make a perfect match?
