INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Dale Coyne Racing has hired Pippa Mann to drive the No. 18 in Saturday night’s race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Mann ran the Indianapolis 500 for Coyne. She finished 30th.

Coyne last week hired Mike Conway to drive the car in the double-header races at Detroit and Conway won Saturday’s first race. Conway finished third on Sunday for Coyne.

The 29-year-old Mann will be making her second start of the season. She missed all of last year as she tried to put together a ride after suffering severe burns to her hand in the 15-car accident in the 2011 season-ending race at Las Vegas where fellow driver Dan Wheldon died.
