Duno Finishes Early at Iowa Corn Indy 250

NEWTON, Iowa (June 24, 2007) - IndyCar rookie driver Milka Duno finished early today at the Iowa Speedway after starting in 19th position in her #23 CITGO Racing Dallara Honda. The Iowa race track is Duno's first short oval event and her fourth IndyCar Series appearance.

Duno was forced to exit the race early as a result of wheel bearing failure.

"This was my first experience on a short oval track and knew it was going to be challenge," said Duno. "The car was very strong and handled well in traffic. I have learned so much during the past few days at the Iowa Speedway and will put this new knowledge into action as I prepare for my next race."

Milka's next event will be at the Richmond International Raceway on Sunday, June 30th, 2007.
