Steinbrenner Happy To Steer More Women to INDYCAR

The latest person to join the ownership ranks of an NTT INDYCAR SERIES team doesn’t see herself as a motorsports pioneer but rather someone like she remembers watching for as a young fan. “I love to see (women leaders), and I hope to see it continue,” Julia Steinbrenner said after being introduced as a co-owner of Steinbrenner Racing, which is part of rookie Devlin DeFrancesco’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES program at Andretti Steinbrenner Autosport. INDYCAR has women in virtually every corner of its paddock – track executives, race engineers and crew members, among them – but as Women’s History Month is celebrated this month, Steinbrenner said all sports benefit from having more women in key positions. “I will be at almost all, if not all, of the races and be the more hands-on (part of Steinbrenner Racing),” she said.
