The Fifth Annual Women in the Winner's Circle Luncheon will be held at
Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 26. This event is held annually to help
raise funds for the Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation (formerly the Lyn
St. James Foundation), founded by racing driver and motivational speaker Lyn St.
James in 1993.
The Foundation is a non-profit educational organization
focusing on worldwide activities and programs for automotive safety and driver
development, especially for women who aspire to become race-car drivers. The
Foundation remains dedicated to continuing to train, advocate and educate for
diversity in racing until "opportunity" and "diversity" are no longer concerns
and are taken for granted.
To date, the foundation has trained over 230
female race-car drivers from 38 states and three countries through its Driver
Development Program and has contributed to Girls, Inc., the Wilbur Shaw Soap Box
Derby Hill in Indianapolis, and other charitable organizations. The WWCF has
also donated numerous autographed items for various charities throughout the
