Mann during practice for the 95th Running of the Indy 500

Pippa Mann, alongside breast cancer survivors, Susan G. Komen Central Indiana leadership and IMS President J. Douglas Boles, was on hand today to help paint the start/finish line pink and accept a monetary contribution from IMS to support the fight against breast cancer. Mann, of course, is no stranger to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mann qualified for the Indy 500 in 2011, becoming the first British female to contest the 500-mile race. She returned to the Indy 500 field in 2013 with Dale Coyne Racing, then in 2014 and again in 2015, she teamed up with Susan G. Komen to race in the 98th and 99th Runnings of the Indianapolis 500 and raise awareness and funding for breast cancer. What can we expect from Mann at the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race?
