Milka Duno And Citgo Racing Win The Petit Le Mans

CITGO Racing and Milka Duno Score Two Wins in Six Days

September 25, 2004 - CITGO Racing's Milka Duno and her teammates Clint Field and Robin Liddell scored the P2 Class win at today's Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA, and finished an impressive 6th overall out of a total of 35 cars starting the race.

With the race running its full 1,000 mile distance, Intersport Racing's CITGO-branded #30 Lola B2K/40 P2 Le Mans Prototype took the checkered flag and the P2 class victory after 9 hours and 35 minutes of competition.

Normally there are several race-action items to report - especially in a race that is almost 10 hours long - but the drivers, team and car dominated the class and performed flawlessly. No spins, no off-course excursions, no minor problems.

This is the second win in a week for Milka and CITGO Racing. Last Sunday at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, Milka and regular teammate Andy Wallace earned an overall win in their #2 CITGO sponsored Daytona Prototype car at the Rolex Sports Car Series Miami 250. This week Milka has successfully taken on a different challenge by competing in an open cockpit Le Mans Prototype sports car.

"What a great race, great team and great drivers," beamed Milka. "We had good practices all week and we got the class pole too, but even with all that you still need to have everything and everybody working really well together - and you have to have luck too! It is a very long race and it is so competitive - there is no room whatsoever for any mistakes. I can't say enough about my co-drivers and the crew. This is a very important race and to win here is really wonderful. I'm glad we we're able to win for CITGO because they deserve it for all their commitment and support."
