MILKA DUNO RACE REPORT: INDY 300 KANSAS SPEEDWAY
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 1, 2010) - IZOD IndyCar driver Milka Duno was having a great run in today's Road Runner Turbo Indy 300 at Kansas Speedway when a pit lane incident resulted in mechanical issues that ended her day early.
After exiting her pit during a yellow-flag pit stop and entering pit lane, Duno's #18 CITGO/CANTV Dale Coyne Racing entry was squeezed by the #4 and the #5 car into a double-spin with the #5 car.
Duno would make two more pit stops immediately after the incident to determine why the car was ill-handling after the contact. After inspection by the team the damage was determined to be either in the upright or the gearbox and would end what was looking like a very promising day.
"From where we were it looked like the #4 car came out wide and pushed the #5 car into Milka," explained Dale Coyne. "It was a real shame as Milka was showing great form in the race and running very competitively at the time."
"My thanks to Dale Coyne and the team for a great job this week," said Duno. "We had a good start and we were gaining position, but an incident in pit lane ended our day far too early. It's a disappointment for sure - it was out of our control - but it doesn't take away the progress that we made this week. It was great to be back at Kansas and to see many of the people that I met when I first raced in IndyCar at this track in 2007!"
