Summary

Lyn St. James had a successful career in sports car racing when she qualified for the Indianapolis 500 in 1992, but Indy was only her second open-wheel race and her first on an oval track. St. James was named Rookie of the Year for her strong 11th-place finish -- the first woman to earn that honor.
