LONG POND, Pa. — Pippa Mann will return to the IndyCar series for Sunday's race at Pocono. She'll drive the No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing car.

Mann has raced just twice this season in IndyCar and has yet to finish a race.

In Indy Lights in 2010, Mann won the pole at Indy, Kentucky and Homestead, all ovals. She made her IndyCar debut at the 2011 Indianapolis 500.

The IndyCar Series has not been at Pocono Raceway since 1989.

"The track looks very interesting, and so different from anywhere I have been before," she said. "It almost feels like the combination of a road course and oval rolled into one because of the different types of corners. I am expecting that we will have to make some pretty interesting compromises on the set-up, and working out which corners are the crucial ones to be fast, and to be able to follow and pass in the race will be important."
