Duno and Carpentier prepare for 2007 Rolex 24 At Daytona

November 6, 2006, Los Angeles, CA...CITGO Racing's Milka Duno will test with open-wheel veteran Patrick Carpentier at Daytona International Speedway this Monday and Tuesday, November 6 and 7. The two-day test session is in preparation for the first race of the 2007 Rolex Sports Car Series Championship -- the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 27 and 28, 2007.

Duno and Carpentier will test in the #11 CITGO Pontiac Riley that they drove together at the Sonoma 250 at Infineon last August - where they scored a 7th-place finish.

Milka Duno

"I'm anxious to get back on the track and in preparation for such a legendary race as the Rolex 24. As it is such a competitive and challenging race with many of the best drivers in the sport, to have Patrick with us for these sessions and this race is very exciting and very valuable. I'm also excited to be back in the pits and the garage with the talented crew of CITGO Racing. I look forward to the hard work and camaraderie with them and Patrick and know that we'll all be focused on taking every advantage of this session."

"I'm very excited actually to start -- it is the beginning of a new thing and I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. I'm very happy and looking forward to it. This is very exciting and I'd like to thank again CITGO and SAMAX and all the guys for giving me this opportunity."
