Katherine Legg will try to return to the Indy 500 for the first time in 10 years as announced by Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing she would enter the No. 44 Dallara-Honda in heat 107 of the race.

Legge has two Indy 500 starts, most recently finishing 26th in 2013. In 2012, she placed 22nd as a rookie.

Her RLL car will be sponsored by Hendrickson, a manufacturer of suspension systems and components for commercial vehicles.

Legge was a full-time racer in the Champ Car World Series in 2006-07 and had 10 IndyCar starts in 2012. She has mostly been racing sports cars lately, and last month it was announced that she would be a full-time GTD driver with Gradient Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship this season. She recovered from a serious accident in France in which her legs were broken in 2020.

She also took victory and pole position with RLL in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series in the 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E season.

Legge, whose team finished fourth in class at the Rolex 24 at Daytona last month, is one of nine women to compete in NBC’s May 28 Indy 500.

“I am thrilled to be back with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing for the biggest race in the world, the Indy 500,” Legge, 42, said in a press release. “Bobby gave me my first chance to win a team race in the Jaguar I-PACE Series a few years ago and I feel like coming home to be back with the team, especially since I’m also very proud of it. return from HPD to IMSA and now to the IndyCar series.

“Racing in Indy with the Indy 500 winning team and with Honda is an amazing opportunity for which I am very grateful and intend to make the most of it. I hope I can learn from my teammates and team members and smoothly return to open wheel racing in May. Can’t wait to get to work!”

Team co-owner Bobby Rahal said: “After more than a few attempts, I am delighted to announce that Katherine will be joining us in our Hendrickson Honda for the participating in the Indy 500. I have been a fan of Katherine for many years and I know that in the right situation she can be competitive and make a difference at the end of the race. She has already raced for us in the Jaguar EV program, won from pole position in Mexico City and finished on the podium several times, so it’s nice to have her back to us to work together for the first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I know she looks at this as a chance to show everyone what she’s really capable of.”

Eli Tomac will continue his strong championship defense as the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series heads to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida for Round 6 of the 2023 season.

With his victory in Houston, Tomac won three of the first five races this season and opened up a seven-point lead over Chase Sexton (as the Honda rider stayed close to finishing second after winning in Anaheim). A resurgent Cooper Webb is 12 points behind after his fourth consecutive top-five finish at the season opener.

Dylan Ferrandis’ status for Tampa was uncertain after a Yamaha rider (and teammate Tomac) entered concussion protocol due to the accident. Malcolm Stewart was also out indefinitely after knee surgery.
