Milka Duno: Chicagoland Race Report 

JOLIET, IL (August 28, 2010) – Milka Duno finished 19th out of 29 entries in tonight’s 200-lap Indy 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL.

In her first practice session on Friday morning her on-track time was seriously reduced due to a mechanical issue which caused her to have only 13 laps in the 60-minute session, but it was enough for her to deliver a best lap time only 7 tenths of a second off the practice’s leader.

The mechanical issue fixed, but with no opportunity for a shake-down, Duno qualified 26th for the start of tonight’s race – with a differential of 8 tenths of a second from the pole sitter’s time.

In the last practice session after qualifying Duno was able to reduce the differential from the practice’s fastest driver to 6 tenths of a second.

“I’m happy to be back on the ovals and I really enjoy racing at Chicagoland,” said Duno. “We had some bad luck in the first practice session that really cut down on our practice time but we were still able to improve which is always a good sign. Many thanks to Dale and the team for all of their effort and I’m happy that we had a good result at their hometown circuit!”
