sarahIndy Racing League driver and team owner Sarah Fisher this afternoon was honored at the fifth annual Indy’s Best & Brightest under 40 Awards in front of a crowd of 650 business professionals at the Gene B. Glick Jr. Achievement Education Center. Fisher beat out nine other finalists in her industry specific category—Media, Entertainment & Sports. She was one of 100 total finalists across 10 categories.

“I was honored just to be nominated and become a finalist and didn’t expect to win,” Fisher said. “Being new to the whole entrepreneur thing is challenging for me as I’m use to just doing the driving part of being in auto racing. But we’ve enjoyed our time building Sarah Fisher Racing. There are so many talented people here today that I had the honor of meeting, which is inspiring. For everyone on my team, for all my sponsors and of course, to the fans, thanks for all of your support. The 2009 racing season will be here before we know it.”

Fisher said she plans to expand her schedule to include at least 10 IRL races next season. The Best and Brightest initiative was created by Junior Achievement of Central Indiana to recognize up and coming talent and the next generation of leaders in the Indianapolis community. The awards are sponsored by KPMG LLP. Finalists in each category are judged on professional accomplishments and leadership qualities.
