INDIANAPOLIS, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While competing in "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" on Sunday, IZOD IndyCar Series driver Katherine Legge will honor millions of Girl Scouts by wearing the Girl Scout logo on her helmet during the 96th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Legge, who attributes much of her success to the confidence and character she developed while growing up as a Girl Guide in the United Kingdom, will become the ninth woman to race in the Indianapolis 500.
The logo will be worn to call attention to Girl Scouts' ToGetHerThere campaign, and Legge's partnership with the Girl Scouts will continue beyond Sunday's race as she becomes Girl Scouts' inaugural STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Ambassador and Girl Scouts' first motorsports athlete as a national spokesperson.
