Donald Trump won’t drive Indy 500 pace car, after all

INDIANAPOLIS (Boston Herald) — The Donald has dumped himself from the Indianapolis 500.

Donald Trump said Thursday he will not be the celebrity pace-car driver for the May 29 race, calling it "inappropriate" since "he may be announcing shortly his intention" to run for president. He also said it would be impossible to fulfill the required practice sessions that occur late in race week because of his busy schedule.
