Pippa Mann says she is unsure what the future holds for her for the rest of the 2019 racing season.
Mann who drove for the newly formed Clauson Marshall Racing in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge last weekend starting 30th and finishing 16th released the following statement on her official Facebook page on Saturday:
As the NTT IndyCar Series gets ready to go racing in Detroit this weekend, many of you are asking what’s next for me… The honest answer is for now, I don’t know.
I am so honored I got to drive the Clauson-Marshall Racing Driven2SaveLives Team Chevy entry at the #Indy500 this May, and so thankful we had a good run not only on race day, but all month long. We also made some pretty special memories off the track that I will always treasure. 💚
However that was ALL the funding I had (and some I didn’t really have!) to compete in 2019, and right now the pink Bell Racing helmet is on a shelf in my closet. I took almost 8 weeks off work to come run this race, so it’s time to get back to the day job as a performance driving coach this coming week.
Rest assured I’m always working towards the next opportunity, and always hopeful there’s another race car in my future. 👊🏻
