The new Pacers uniforms pay tribute to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The team unveiled their The City Edition uniforms Wednesday.  They feature vertical checkered racing stripes and have “Always Lead” printed above the jersey tag.

“To ‘Always Lead’ isn’t simply a reference to racing; it also connects to the Pacers’ goal of leading in their community, on the court, and in their personal lives,” explains a writer.

The NBA says the new jerseys will be worn as early as next month.
