Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway

DAYTONA BEACH, FL  (January 11, 2011) – Milka Duno delivered strong results on Day One of the ARCA Racing Series testing at Daytona International Speedway with Sheltra Motorsports, the 2010 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menard’s Champion.

Duno, piloting the team’s No. 63 Dodge Charger, was 7th quickest of 29 cars in today’s morning session and 5th quickest of 40 cars in the afternoon session.

In the morning session Duno completed 5 laps with a best time of 50.06 at 179.763mph and improved in a 27-lap afternoon session to a best time of 49.37 at 182.293mph.

This was Duno’s very first time behind the wheel of a stock car since she competed in the ARCA season-opener at Daytona one year ago.

Crew Chief Jon Wolfe and his crew made some adjustments to the car between sessions and worked with Duno to continue getting her comfortable in the car and to try new lines on the track. Patrick Sheltra worked with her throughout the day to help her get the most out of the car.

“It was a good practice today and I was very impressed with the team and how professional they were,” said Duno. “We are looking for more speed and will work hard over the next two days to get faster. It was great to get Patrick’s input and it was a big help. He’s the 2010 champion and he knows what to do.”
