August 5, 2004 -- CITGO Racing, at the half-way mark of the 2004 Rolex Sports Car Series, heads to its 7th race of the season -- the Mid-Ohio Road Racing Classic -- on August 7, 2004. Teammates Milka Duno and Andy Wallace will drive the #2 CITGO Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype on the 2.258-mile, 15-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

At mid-season Milka is currently 4th in the Driver Point Standings. The team is 3rd in the Team Point Standings, 1st in Manufacturer Point Standings and 2nd in total Team Laps Led with 355.

"I've raced at Mid-Ohio before, but in another series," said Milka. "This will be my first race on the track in the #2 CITGO Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype. We've done some testing at Barber and VIR since our last race and the team continues to make the car better. Andy is such a pleasure to test and drive with and is invaluable to me as a teammate. CITGO has provided us with the support to create and build this program and I simply cannot thank them enough. We've done some really good work during the first half of the season that I feel will deliver great results for the balance of the championship."

A welcome plus for Milka and Andy and the entire team is that the race will begin in the cooler temperatures of early evening with a scheduled start at 5:30pm EST. The race will have a 250-miles/111-lap/3-hour time limit.

The Mid-Ohio Road Racing Classic is the 7th race on the 12-race Rolex Sports Car Series schedule. SPEED Channel will broadcast the race tape-delayed on Saturday night, August 7 at 8:00pm EST.
