Thought for Today:  I endeavor to make the most of everything. -Victoria Woodhull, first female presidential candidate, 1872

 

Moments in History: In 1977, Janet Guthrie is the first woman to drive in the Indy 500.

Guthrie was an aerospace engineer, training to be an astronaut, when she was cut from the space program because she didn’t have her PhD. She turned to car racing instead and became the first woman to qualify for the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Mechanical difficulties forced her out of the 1977 Indy race, but the next year she finished in ninth place (with a broken wrist!). The helmet and suit that Guthrie wore in her first Indy race are on display in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.
