PIPPA MANN WINS THE INDY LIGHTS RACE AT KENTUCKY!

Originally this posting was to announce that Pippa Mann had won the pole for the start of the 9-4-2010 Indy Lights race at Kentucky.  Now at the race’s conclusion I’m revising this (at 6:30 pm EDT race day) to announce that she has won the 100 mile race – leading all 67 laps!  This lady is for real!

Pippa Mann a Close Second in Indy Lights at Chicagoland

Pippa Mann, after leading a race for the first time in her Indy Lights career (several laps), came in second today in the 67 lap race at Chicagoland Speedway. James Hinchcliffe was the winner by only 0.0159 seconds – and Phillip Major came in third. Pippa is a native of Ipswich, England, and drives the No. 11 car for Sam Schmidt Motorsports.  Keep an eye on this rising star.  My mother who loved open-wheel racing is surely pleased to see a lady do so well.   Mom left to be with the Great Guy In the Sky back in 2004 so I’m sure she gets to watch every race that interests her.
