At 19, Sarah Fisher still giggles. Not something you often hear from a race car driver. But she also drives fast, which is definitely something you expect from a race car driver. "I'm never going to have the life of a normal 19-year-old," she said the other day during a conference call. "That's just never been true for me." A little more than a year ago, Fisher was given the opportunity to drive an IRL car in Texas. Her engine blew and she finished 25th, but those who saw her - and even car owner Derek Walker, who didn't - decided she had talent.

INDIANAPOLIS - Michael Andretti. Eddie Cheever. Arie Luyendyk. Al Unser Jr. Sarah Fisher. Even Winston Cup star Tony Stewart, who started his major-league career in the Indy Racing League, will line up for today's 85th Indianapolis 500. It's an all-star cast that is supposed to return the luster to the most famous race in the world. "This year, nobody can say someone wasn't here," said Eliseo Salazar, an IRL driver who works for A. J. Foyt. "Only F-1 [Formula One] drivers aren't here, and in the 21st century, with the schedules, that's out of the question."
