INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Donald Trump hasn’t announced whether he’ll run for president, but he will be involved in a race of a different kind next month.

The real estate tycoon has been selected to drive the pace car in the 100th anniversary Indianapolis 500.

Race organizers said Tuesday that Trump will drive a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Pace Car to lead the field of 33 drivers at the start of the race May 29 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Trump says he’s honored to have the job and says the race “has been the gold standard of motorsports for a century.”

The Camaro is equipped with a 400-horsepower V-8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

The race starts at noon and is being televised by ABC.
