Pippa Mann has been confirmed to return to the No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda for the final oval race of the Verizon IndyCar season, the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono, PA. The event will mark Mann’s second start at the tricky triangle, with her previous start in 2013, also driving the No. 18 car for Dale Coyne Racing.

“Pocono is probably my favorite oval on the schedule after Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I love the uniqueness of the track, and the challenge of trying to find a car balance that works in three completely different corners. In 2013 it was a tough track to pass at, largely due to that different nature of the corners, and working out where on the track you needed to be fast, and to be able to follow, to then try and complete the pass. There’s another 100 miles added to the race since I last drove it, making it another 500 mile race, but I normally enjoy the long races, so I’m looking forwards to that aspect too.

“It was one of the races I found hardest to watch from the outside last year, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be back on the inside of an IndyCar cockpit as we head back to Pennsylvania in 2015.”

Mann finished 15th in 2013, a result she and the team are hoping to improve upon their second time together at Pocono.
