"It was an honor last year to be able to partner with Susan G. Komen," said Mann in a release from the team. "By bringing Komen's iconic images and colors to the Indy 500, we were able to promote its cause, while raising funds and awareness for Komen's mission."
In three career starts at the famed Yard of Bricks, Mann's best start is 22nd (2014) and her best finish is 20th (2011).

Mann continued, "The last time I strapped into a race car may have been last May, but I feel very fortunate to have had such strong support from the Dale Coyne Racing team and from Team Owner Dale Coyne over the past 12 months. We are all thrilled to bring this pink program back for a second year running."

"There is nothing that makes our team prouder than to represent Susan G. Komen and all of the hard work that goes into the organization's efforts both in the U.S. and around the world," commented Dale Coyne. "Pippa is extremely dedicated to her efforts as a driver at Indy and we look forward to our continued success with this partnership."
"Pippa's passion for our cause inspires us all," said Komen President and CEO Judy Salerno, M.D., M.S. "Whether on the track or out in the community, her commitment to raising awareness and funds brings us one step closer to a world without breast cancer."
