Women At The Speedway
Posted by KelseyUSA
WELCOME to Day 7 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Today I will be live blogging about the interesting people that I have been meeting that are working here at the Speedway this month!
Around The Track: Saw Jamie Little having ‘girl talk’ with Sarah Fisher at the Century 21 pit stall earlier today! Susie Jensen (sp?) working hard for Firestone, checking the temperatures of the tires. Anna Chatten, gearbox mechanic for Panther Racing also working to get JR Hildebrand’s car ready to go for practice!! Mr. Gage got his personally signed hero card from Pippa Mann this morning – He is one of her biggest fans. Oh – and check out my SteelOvaryNation shirt — it may be a little hot today!!!
This is Kathy Sax – she is wearing a Yellow shirt … yes, one of those! She is such a sweet lady and I’m glad that I got to talk with her for a few minutes about her job. She is a former teacher and loves to spend time outdoors, so working at the track during the Month of May is great for her. One very fun and interesting thing about Kathy is that she has actually run the 500 Festival Mini Marathon 27 times!
I call her my ‘racing mom’ – we have been friends on Twitter for quite awhile now and its always great to see her at the track. She has been working the TV broadcasts for open-wheel racing series since 1995. She has traveled the world with her husband, who also works in racing, and truly loves her job! I’m envious.
