Pippa Mann will return to Dale Coyne Racing to compete in the Indianapolis 500 for the sixth consecutive year, this time with support from Donate Life Indiana, a nonprofit organization that manages the Indiana Donor Registry.
Mann’s No. 63 Honda will feature her traditional pink color on only its minor details, including the mirrors and numbers. The logo of former primary sponsor Susan G. Komen appears on the car’s front wing.
As the unofficial record holder for the fastest lap by a female at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Mann will use her seventh Indy 500 start as a platform through which to increase awareness among young people about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation.
By finishing 17th, Mann earned her best finish yet at the “500” last May. Her first laps with the new universal aero kit will come when practice for the 102nd edition of the race kicks off on May 15.
