FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana man plans to sell his collection of Corvette Indy 500 pace cars.
Keith Busse is auctioning the 16 cars next month during Mecum Auctions' spring sale at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
The collection includes cars from 1978 to 2017. Busse says not every car in the collection actually paced the race, but some were used at the track in other ways.
Mecum spokesman David Morton says the auction will likely be televised by NBC Sports Network. He says the collection will be offered as a single lot. It will only be split if it doesn't sell for the desired price.
Busse says he expects the cars could go for as much as $2 million.
