RUSHVILLE — Darrel Wilkinson of Rushville has been contacted by the 500 Festival Parade Committee to drive his vintage Mercury convertible in this year’s IPL 500 Festival Parade.

“It is an honor and privilege to have this opportunity again this year,” Wilkinson said. In year’s past, Wilkinson has had the privilege of transporting John Oates of Hall and Oates, Channel 13 weather personalities, Dorothy the Dinosaur from Sesame Street and most recently Scott Thiems, board chairman of the parade family.
