Arnold Schwarzenegger Piloting Pace Car at Sonoma

Former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger will pilot the pace car for the June 28 Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

Schwarzenegger will drive a 2016 Toyota Mirari to lead the drivers to the green flag.

“I can’t wait to drive the pace car at Sonoma,” Schwarzenegger said in a press statement on the Sonoma website. “It will be an honor to lead these fantastic athletes and champions around the raceway, and on top of it, I get to drive a car that is both powerful and green.”

The Toyota Mirai is a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle that emits water from its exhaust. It will be the first time a hydrogen fuel cell car will lead the field to green at Sonoma and it will also be the first time Schwarzenegger has done it as well.

He will also meet and greet drivers on the stage during driver introductions.

Schwarzenegger’s new movie Terminator Genisys is set to debut on July 1.
