Meet Sarah Fisher, an IndyCar driver. See photos, video and a biography of Sarah below.
Sarah Fisher was knocked out of the Indy 500 in Lap 106, after Tony Kanaan (who was leading the race), spun out of Turn 3 and Fisher hit him hard, which forced both drivers out of the race. Neither Fisher or Kanaan were seriously hurt in the crash. It was a sad finish for Fisher, who until Thursday, had not even had a sponsor for the race. Text 4 Cars.com, which is an automobile resale site that gives consumers info on vehicles they’re interested in buying, agreed to sponsor Sarah’s car for the race. Everybody Loves Raymond actress Patricia Heaton, her husband, producer David Hunt, and their production company, Four Boys Film, have stepped up and announced that they will be sponsoring the Sarah Fisher Racing Team as well.
