INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — British driver Pippa Mann will run in next month’s Indianapolis 500 for Dale Coyne Racing, her first race since she was injured in the 2011 IndyCar season finale that killed Dan Wheldon.

The team said Tuesday the 29-year-old Mann will join fellow Briton Justin Wilson and Brazilian Ana Beatriz to complete three Honda-powered entries in the race. Mann became the eighth woman to qualify for and race in the Indy 500 in 2011.
