I love IndyCars I used to sponsor the team of former Formula 1 Ferrari driver Stefan Johansson with drivers Jimmy Vasser and Ryan Hunter-Reay who is currently winning a lot of races and I was there for his first win ever in an IndyCar in Queensland, Australia. The are all super nice people with a lot of talent and a lot of fun.
I have followed Sarah Fisher the Commercial Point, Ohio native who first came into the public eye at 19 when she became the youngest woman to qualify for the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” – the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race. So yes to fly to meet her in my hometown at the Honda Indy with another Sarah Fisher, singer, songwriter, and actress from the television show Degrassi, what a bonus that is, two women who rock.
David Bowie when he starts talking to you about travel, Japan, China, music , books, or films has a steely focus. Sarah also has these attributes of Bowie and her steely focus, quickly paid dividends. Fisher became the first woman to win a pole position for a major open-wheel race when she qualified fastest for the 2002 Belterra Casino Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway. Her lightning-quick lap of 221.390 mph remains the fastest lap on record at that track.
Sarah Fisher Racing in 2008. The team scored its first victory in October 2011 with driver Ed Carpenter, and Sarah became the first female team owner to win a race in the IZOD IndyCar Series.
2011 was a year of milestones off-track for Fisher as well. With her husband Andy by her side, she gave birth to daughter Zoey on September 13, 2011. Zoey was not quite three-weeks-old when her mom’s team won its first race and was in victory lane to celebrate.
In 2012 Fisher’s race team, Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, is competing in the IZOD IndyCar Series with rookie driver Josef Newgarden.
