“All of us at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway are saddened by the passing of James Garner. He was a true friend of the Indianapolis 500 and his passion for the event, for the sport, and its fans made his many appearances at the race something to look forward to each year.BU complete card - 2014 - final As a three-time pace car driver for the 500 (1975, 1977 & 1985), Garner was also a skilled driver and will be remembered as one of the first true celebrities to be given the honor of leading the field of 33 to the green flag. Our thoughts and prayers are with Garner’s family, friends and fans.”
