Mark your calendar! Join EWF for its first joint event with FEI, dinner featuring Sarah Fisher.
- Sarah Fisher is the youngest woman to ever qualify for the Indy 500 at age nineteen. She’s a team owner and a business owner.
- Fisher was also the first woman to claim a pole position in a major American open-wheel race and had nine starts in the Indianapolis 500—the most for a woman in the race.
- She began competing at the age of five when her parents entered her in a quarter-midget race before progressing to karting three years later. Fisher debuted in the IRL at the final race of the 1999 season. In 2008, Fisher established and drove for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing until her retirement at the end of the 2010 season.
- In retirement, Fisher focused on operating her team full-time and fielded drivers Ed Carpenter and Josef Newgarden. She retained ownership of the team until she merged it with Ed Carpenter Racing to become CFH Racing for the 2015 season. In 2016, Fisher sold her stake in CFH Racing to focus on a full-time career in business in Indiana but remained with the team to help with sponsorship development. That year, she was hired as the IndyCar Series’ official Safety Car driver, a role she currently shares with former driver Oriol Servià.
