Keynote Speaker: Sarah Fisher

IndyCar Pioneer & Entrepreneur

As a 9 time Indy 500 starter – the most by a woman – Sarah Fisher holds many records, including the first woman to win the pole position for a major North American open-wheel event, the fastest woman to ever qualify for the Indianapolis 500 and the still current track record holder at Kentucky Speedway. After 8 years of INDYCAR team ownership, driving for herself in 3 of those years, being awarded "Indy's Best and Brightest Leaders under 40," voted "Most Popular Driver" four times in two separate series (INDYCAR and Nascar), and leading all American Josef Newgarden to his first 2 victories in INDYCAR, it won't surprise you that her newest venture is an Indoor Karting Facility and Racing Restaurant (Speedway Indoor Karting, 1911 Grill) in Speedway, Indiana. Sarah and her husband Andy live on the southside of Indianapolis with their 2 children Zoey (4) and Danny (2).

IMAA’s new Women Leaders in Mining & Aggregates (WLMA) committee is proud to present Ms. Fisher as this year’s Keynote presentation during the General Session.
