Indy Car Driver Lyn St. James to Speak at IMAX 3D Theater Monday

INDIANAPOLIS, April 30 - More than 800 students from Central Indiana will visit the IMAX 3D Theater in downtown Indianapolis Monday to hear Pep Boys Indy Racing League driver Lyn St. James speak and then to watch "Super Speedway," an auto racing film that uses IMAX's six-story screen.

St. James, who will drive the Lifetime Television for Women/Biomet G-Force Nissan Infiniti in the Indy 500 May 24, is one of the world's top role models. She will give a short talk on her racing career at 11 a.m. and again at 12:15 p.m. prior to two showings of the film, which puts viewers in the cockpit of an Indy car traveling at over 200 mph.

The schools represented include five from Indianapolis--Raymond Park Middle School, Sucrest Elementary School, Rousseau McClellan Elementary School (IPS 91), Daniel Webster Elementary School (IPS 46) and Key Learning Community; and one from Terre Haute, Ind.--Deming Elementary School.

The theater is located at White River State Park, 650 West Washington St.
