to lead the 500. She finished fourth
in her rookie year and is now no longer
content just to race - she wants to
win.

Sarah Fisher is 26 years old - a
racing veteran who is getting married
in September. She is back at the
Brickyard after failing to make the
race each of the past two years.

And then there's newcomer, Milka
Duno. The Caracas, Venezuela native is
a 35 year old rookie. Her experience
is mainly in sports cars and her only
other Indy car race was last month at
Kansas City. But she's also a Naval
engineer with four masters degrees.
