As the 100th annual Indianapolis 500 kicks off this weekend, you may notice an unusual sight. A bright pink car that is being driven by a woman.
That woman is Pippa Mann, she's the only female driver entered in the Indianapolis 500, and this will be her fifth time participating in the annual race.
"We're aiming to be top 10 or top 15 and then have a really clean run on race day," Mann tells CNBC.
The 32-year-old British driver first got her start as a teenager racing go-karts, but never imagined it could become a full-time career.
Mann was the eighth woman in history and the first British female to start the 500-mile race.
