Women's World Cup champ (and Ben Davis High School star) Lauren Holiday has been named the pace car driver for today's Brickyard 400.
The midfielder for the U.S. National team will drive a Chevrolet SS to start the race. It will be the second year in a row that the Chevy SS has served as the pace car.
Serving as pace car driver will be Holiday's first public appearance in Indiana since the U.S. team's 5-2 win over Japan in the Women's World Cup final on July 5. She scored a goal in what turned out to be her final game for the national team before retirement.
