Homestead Dairy in Plymouth will be well represented at the Indy 500 this weekend. Homestead's Jill Houin has been named "Rookie Milk Woman" and she will award bottles of milk to the winning car owner and chief mechanic–and train for the big moment next year when she gets to hand the milk to the winning driver.
