More Milka. Seriously.

The week of improbabilities continues.

Milka Duno has revealed that she will embark on her second season in the Indycar Series after switching teams and signing with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing to drive the #23 CITGO-sponsored Dallara.

Once again, as in her seven-event debut campaign in 2007, the Venezuelan will only contest selected races this season, but will join the rest of the field at this week's Homestead-Miami Speedway test session, before decamping to Sebring International Raceway next week for her first taste of an IRL car in road course guise.

There's nothing real in the world anymore.

    well, there's only one way to go...up.

    Hey, maybe she'll look better on road courses. I mean ... oh, you know what I mean. This whole topic is fraught with the risk of double entendres. :-)

    File this under "Merger side effects may include blurry vision, loss of blood pressure when standing and possible reappearance of Milka Duno, if symptoms persist..."

    I know.... I took this picture last May. Caption contest, anyone?

    One guess here -- Mongo Hugo Money.

    I wonder if TG had a hand in this. Maybe he funded her addition to D&R just so the competitively disadvantaged CCWS teams wouldn't always finish last....

    Another season of my wife's "Mika Dunno . . . ." jokes and impersonations. :^/

    Where's Kat Legge when you really need her?

  8. Johnny // February 25, 2008 10:42 AM  


    In DTM, where she'll be paid no less.

    Is this for real?

    Just when things started to make sense.

    She should be good on road courses because they are artifical curves.

    With all these Johns I'm thinking this site should become My Name Is Heidi Fleiss.

    actually she carries CITGO sponsorship with her, I'm sure D&R just saw the dollar signs, and all they need to do is pony up small sponsorships for the remaining races, get Townsend Bell in the car and they qualify for TEAM...

    I bash her too but in all honesty we can't fully judge her until after this season cause we'll have an actual controlled test. new SAMAX team vs. experienced D&R... if there no improvement, its on Milka for sure...

    No less than what, Johnny? [rimshot]

    If D&R is this desperate, I'm suddenly very concerned for Buddy Rice's future.

    Sarah Fisher better have the best freakin' season ever ever ever.

    Seriously, somebody BETTER GET MILKA OUT OF INDYCAR BEFORE SHE GETS SOMEONE SERIOUSLY HURT! the best she ever did was 10 mph under the pace! !?!

    Citgo brings mucho money. The only problem is, you have to put Milka in the car to get it.

    The best news here ... she's running part-time (and probably part-time on roadies & Indy). My hope is DRR will have another driver whose initials are Buddy Lazier or Townsend Bell ready to run their second car the rest of the season, and they use the Citgo money to fund Buddy Rice's ride, much as they did with Fisher's $$ last year.

    Please, please, P-dog, Jeff, Jennifer...can we find a way to start a grass roots campaign to get Sarah a ride? If any of you guys can come up with a fund, I'll put in the first $100. I don't want to say anything bad about Milka, in fact I hope she proves us all wrong. I just don't want to see Sarah get lost in the shuffle and lose a ride because I think she could really do something in a real car. It’s a shame she’s never really gotten an opportunity driving a D&R car. Sorry D&R.

    So, I read it quickly, but one of TSO's updates from the Sebring test indicates that Milka is now out and SAMAX won't appear on the IndyCar grid this season. Looks like they will stick to sports cars.

    Never mind...I temporarily forgot Milka was hooked up with D&R. Guess that shows you how badly I wished we'd be without our favorite moving chicane...
