Female Indy 500 driver ready to race

Indy 500 rookie Katherine Legge is the ninth woman ever to qualify for the big race and she’s taking on a series of female empowerment initiatives as part of her new role.

On Thursday, Legge announced that she will wear the Girl Scouts logo on her helmet and become the organization’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) ambassador, encouraging girls to get into these important fields and follow their dreams.

Legge and her racing team, the first ever all-female team, join Starting Point this morning to talk about these initiatives and to explain how they’re preparing for the Indy 500 this weekend.
