Lauren Manning

lmLauren is a partner with Darren in iAdvance Motorsports. They met through mutual friends at the Kentucky Derby in 2007. In a slew of questions, one that Lauren asked was, “So, what do you do in Indianapolis?” Darren’s response was, “I’m a driver.” “I can remember thinking, ‘Like, a truck driver?’ I didn’t ask him to elaborate.” Long story short, Lauren quickly learned what “driver” meant, and what the Indycar series was… and soon after fell in love with it. “I saw the passion in the drivers, the ambition, and the competitiveness in them all. It was inspiring.” Lauren is a graduate of Indiana University with concentration in business marketing and management. “I love the marketing side of business, and currently work with drivers to build their “brand image.”
