Milka Duno Passes IndyCar Rookie Test
Venezuela's first female international motorsports professional has defied inclement weather and an unforgiving clock to qualify for IndyCar competition.
Milka Duno has passed the official "Rookie Test" for the 2007 IndyCar Series and will participate in this weekend's activities for the Kansas Lottery Indy 300 at Kansas Speedway. The race, this Sunday, April 29, will be televised live on ESPN2 beginning at 4:30pm ET. This will be Milka's first IndyCar Series race on a planned first-year ten-race schedule that includes the 91st running of the Indy 500 on May 27.
While Milka is an experienced and race-winning sports car racer -- just like any racer entering the IndyCar Series for the first time -- she will be considered a "rookie" during her first season and must pass their "Rookie Test" in order to compete.
