DRIVING MISS DAISY star Morgan Freeman has been chosen to drive the pace car at the star on the INDIANAPOLIS 500 race on 30 May (04).

The actor will keep pace in the CHEVROLET CORVETTE at the start of the annual event in Indiana, leading the starting field on the parade and pace laps.

He says, "Right next to acting, my childhood dream was to drive on a Speedway track. I'm thrilled just to be an observer, but especially thrilled to be a part of the racing logs as the pace car driver for the Indianapolis 500 this year."
