Seller calls this a "pace car" but offers no explanation. Can anyone shed some light on it?

Just alluding to the fact a Desoto convertible paced the 500 that year:

The 1956 DeSoto Firedome models sold very well. In fact, the models sold so well that they outsold Chryslers during that model year. This was the first time in DeSoto history that the brand outsold it's parent Chrysler brand. Added to this triumph was DeSoto serving as the Indy 500 Pace Car that year.
