49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh will drive the pace car at the Indy 500

There will be a familiar face to NFL fans driving the pace car at this weekend's 2013 Indianapolis 500 and that face will be San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh will be driving a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and below is snippet of what Jim had to say about the unique honor:

''Really excited. I was really excited just even being considered when they told me that they were considering me,'' Harbaugh said. ''To actually be doing it, I've already had a couple of dreams about it. I know I'm going to be excited and nervous. I'm anticipating getting there and getting some practice in for it.''
Harbaugh won't try to bring the Corvette back to the Bay Area as his own. 
''That car goes to the winner of the race,'' Harbaugh said. ''The winner of the race is always awarded the pace car at the Indy 500.''
