Sarah Fisher prepares to race in Indianapolis 500


"I'm not here to prove anything to anybody. I'm just here to test myself," she said.

Guthrie and St. James said they thought that way too, until they stepped away from the competition. "It took until people started telling me" what a big deal it was, Guthrie said. "Then, I felt like I had a responsibility I had to live up to."

"I watched her press conference," the IRL's Fisher said. "I think her attitude is excellent, in that she wants to be there and she wants to further her abilities. I know if there was a WIRL and I'd won everything in the WIRL, I'd look for a new challenge, too."
