Pippa Mann secures Dale Coyne Racing Indy 500 drive

Pippa Mann will return to Dale Coyne Racing for this month's 100th running of the Indianapolis 500

The race will be Mann's fifth Indy 500 start, and her fourth in a row with Coyne's IndyCar team.

Mann finished 22nd in 2015 from 25th on the grid, and her best result in the race was 20th in '11.

"I'm so happy to be confirmed for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 with Dale Coyne Racing," Mann said.

"I fell in love with the Indy 500 when I saw it live for the first time in 2009, and it's always such a special event to be part of.

"Dale Coyne Racing has been my home now for the past three seasons at this race, and I am so thankful for the support and opportunities I have had with Dale and Gail's team."

In addition to last year's 500, Mann contested five other oval races with the team, with a pair of 13th-place finishes her best result.

Mann will again promote the Pink #GetInvolved campaign, raising funds for Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness, sporting a pink helmet with the Komen Running Ribbon for the third-straight year.

"This cause is something very personal to me, and to Dale Coyne Racing," said Mann.

"While racing a pink car the past two years certainly attracts attention and awareness for Susan G. Komen, the most important part of our partnership is taking this amazing stage that is the Indianapolis 500, and using it to raise money that can actually go towards care and research.

"Over the past two years, we've raised over $100,000 through activities surrounding the racing program that support Komen's mission, including the 2015 campaign. We're hoping to double last year's goal this year."
