photo 22014 NASCAR Series Season a Season of History for Milka Duno

Los Angeles, Calif. – Milka Duno headed into the last race of her historic first NASCAR Nationwide Series season at Homestead-Miami Speedway with two goals - to learn and to finish – and that she did.

Duno had earned some respectable stats during her time in the ARCA Racing Series in preparation for her entry into NASCAR - but the jump from ARCA to NASCAR is a big and difficult one with a steep learning curve.

In her first Nationwide Series race at Kansas Speedway race Milka qualified well and had a very good start but the car went away from her in very early laps and ended her debut prematurely.

With two wins at Homestead in the Grand American Rolex Series this would be her first time on the track at Homestead in a stock car – and she had much to learn – and she was doing just that by improving and getting faster in each session.

In the qualifying session leading up to the race an underperforming car placed her 39th on the starting grid for what would be an ultra-competitive season finale competition.

Milka Duno 2014 TalladegaDuno becomes first Hispanic female driver to lead a NASCAR national series race.

Los Angeles, Calif.  – Milka Duno competed in her first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday, October 18, starting 36th and finishing 25th - with two laps led. By doing so, she became the first Hispanic female driver to lead a NASCAR national series race.

Duno had only one scheduled two-hour practice session to get acquainted and comfortable in a truck and a series that was entirely new to her. Unfortunately, what was already a steep learning curve was dramatically increased as Duno wasn’t able to get out on the track until an hour and twenty minutes of the session had already expired. With only forty minutes remaining - when she did get on the track - the engine blew after completing only six laps.

Erick Scarpone 14 16A history that inspires

A few months ago I received this message on my Facebook from Erick Scarpone:

“Milka, many years ago you helped us in the Formula SAE UCV project. I just wanted to get a message through to you and thank you very much, and to let you know that thanks to my participation in this competition that you helped make possible, I ended up earning a scholarship and a degree in Automotive Engineering & Manufacturing at a university in Michigan and today I work for Caterpillar. Thanks for the support at the time, and I leave this message of thanks to let you know that your support changed my life. "

When I read this I really felt very pleased, but even more so I'll tell you why. I met Erick in 2004 when he was the team captain of the Central University of Venezuela with the goal to participate in an international competition among universities around the world, in which students had to design, build and race a small formula-style race car. Subsequently Erick graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the university in Venezuela and earned a scholarship to Kettering University in Michigan.

Milka Duno in KansasUnfortunate Turn 2 Twisters Catch Duno & Others

(October 6, 2014) – When Milka Duno qualified for and competed in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, October 4 she became the first Hispanic female driver in history to compete in a NASCAR national series race in the United States.
