St. James has been racing for more than 40 years. She’s raced Le Mans and won twice at Daytona. She was the first woman to win Rookie of the Year honors at the Indianapolis 500 in 1992. She’s also the first woman to race at more than 200 miles per hour.

The Trans-Am Series will take her back to her roots.

St. James said she’s excited about racing in Detroit because it’s the Motor City.

“Some places I go they aren’t really into it as much,” St James said.

She said she’d love to see more women get into racing and hopes her involvement inspires a new generation of drivers.
