No. 27 — Janet Guthrie — 1977 Bryant Heating and Cooling Lightning/Offy

Guthrie was something of a retread rookie in 1977 after trying valiantly the year before to make the race in a Rolla Vollstedt chassis that was, to put it mildly, a bit long in the tooth.

Updated equipment made a big difference for Guthrie the next year, as she made the field comfortably on the last day of qualifying.

Mechanical woes doomed her to 29th place.
