Milka Duno finally has a ride and will begin her ICS career by racing at Kansas next month. In her announcement today it was outlined that she would be running 10 races this year, although the 10 races seemed a rather odd bunch. She's racing the sub-mile oval at Iowa, but not Milwaukee (maybe due to a narrower track?) She's targeting Mid-Ohio and Watkins Glen, but not Sonoma (perhaps she has a wine allergy?)
As you can see from the picture, the Milkalicious firesuit sports some very fashionable bell bottoms. Oh wait, my bad.
As you can also see, Duno is carrying a big sponsorship from Citgo. Most people tend to associate Citgo with Venezuelan fill-in-your-own-blank Hugo Chavez, who is not exactly high in the domestic Q rating.
I can understand that a lot of people might be a bit peeved at this sponsorship, and with good reason. Personally, I don't care. I don't buy Citgo gas, and if Dunohappens to win (which is not very likely) it doesn't directly profit Citgo. If this were a league sponsor (of which there currently is none) I might get my proverbial panties in a bunch, but for now I'll just sit back and watch the racing.
Besides, it's not like we're going to get a lot of shots of her car during the races. Based on her resume I wouldn't expect her to be confused with Uncle Sam or Well Done any time soon...although she does have the read and white paint scheme going.
