Road Racing Classic - on August 7, 2004. Teammates Milka Duno and Andy
Wallace will drive the #2 CITGO Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype on

At mid-season Milka is currently 4th in the Driver Point Standings.
The team is 3rd in the Team Point Standings, 1st in Manufacturer Point
Standings and 2nd in total Team Laps Led with 355.
"I've raced at Mid-Ohio before, but in another series," said
Milka. "This will be my first race on the track in the #2 CITGO
Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype. We've done some testing at Barber
and VIR since our last race and the team continues to make the car better.
Andy is such a pleasure to test and drive with and is invaluable to
me as a teammate. CITGO has provided us with the support to create and
build this program and I simply cannot thank them enough. We've done
some really good work during the first half of the season that I feel
will deliver great results for the balance of the championship."
A welcome plus for Milka and Andy and the entire team is that the race
will begin in the cooler temperatures of early evening with a scheduled
start at 5:30pm EST. The race will have a 250-miles/111-lap/3-hour time
The Mid-Ohio Road Racing Classic is the 7th race on the 12-race Rolex
Sports Car Series schedule. SPEED Channel will broadcast the race tape-delayed
on Saturday night, August 7 at 8:00pm EST.
