INDIANAPOLIS -

An LPGA event this summer at the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be promoted in a prominent place. AJ Foyt Racing's No. 40 entry in this year's Indianapolis 500 will feature a design showcasing the Indy Women in Tech Championship. As its name suggests, one of the event's goals is to raise the profile and awareness among women of the state's technology sector.

The car will be driven this month in Indianapolis by Zach Veach, who will attempt to qualify for the Indy 500. An unveiling event Wednesday at the AJ Foyt Racing Shop in Speedway also included the debut of the IWiT Championship ticket graphics.

The LPGA event is set for September 4-9. It will include 144 pros and a $2 million purse. No LPGA event has been held at the Brickyard Crossing since the 500 Ladies Classic in 1968.
