THE RACE IS ON: Phillips-Van Heusen’s Izod brand hosted a celebration for its Izod IndyCar Series and a preview of the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, which takes place on May 29. On hand at the Classic Car Club in New York were legendary racer Mario Andretti, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Hélio Castroneves, Team Penske Izod car driver Ryan Briscoe and 2010 Indianapolis 500 rookie of the year Simona de Silvestro, one of only seven women to participate in the fabled race over the past century — versus 725 male drivers. “To actually be [at the Indianapolis 500] is an unbelievable feeling. My knees were shaking getting into the car,” de Silvestro told the crowd, which included PVH president Allen Sirkin and marketing head Mike Kelly, as well as Izod IndyCar Series ceo Randy Bernard and Indianapolis Motor Speedway ceo Jeff Belskus. “Being a female race car driver there is still something pretty new. I think if one of us is going to the win the Indy 500, I hope it’s me.”
