IndyCar rookie Milka Duno might not be long for the series, as Indy Racing League officials review her progress....dum dum dum, dum dee-dum, dum dee-dum...
SAMAX driver Duno qualified last in four of her five races. She crashed in a test at Nashville on the day before the event’s start. Brian Barnhart, the IRL’s competition boss, met with league driving consultants Johnny Rutherford, Al Unser and Rick Mears at Nashville. Barnhart intends to meet with SAMAX officials before Duno’s next scheduled race, Aug. 5 at Michigan International Speedway.
UPDATE: Our buddy Bill points out that on Saturday morning Curt Cavin reported "IRL officials have cleared rookie Milka Duno to continue participating. She is not in this weekend's field but has four more races left this season." Looks like Ryan Hunter-Reay will have to be that much better if he hopes to win Bombardier Rookie of the Year.
