Photos: Celebrities on the 2013 Indy 500 Red Carpet

Performers and luminaries of all backgrounds descended on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a need for speed.

Gymnastics greats Shawn Johnson and Jordyn Wieber, Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Tyler Clary, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee, former NBA player and Indiana Pacers announcer Clark Kellogg, Grammy-winning singer Sandi Patty, members of the rock bands Foreigner and Live, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, actors including Michael Peña, Tim Daly, Mike Epps (an Indy native), and Windell Middlebrooks, and more. Check them out in the photo gallery below:
