Loved this story about women at the Indy 500, especially because of its focus on pit crew members as well as drivers.

“Whereas nine women have raced the track, only two have worked elbow deep in grease and car carcass in the pit crew. The adrenaline-pounding work of pit crew is arguably one of the more dangerous roles in sports.”
