Skip to comments.Other female driver throws towel in Patrick's face

Lexington, Ohio Danica Patrick finished 12th in the Honda Indy 200 IRL race Sunday, a day after a confrontation with the other female driver in the race.
Patrick felt Milka Duno cut her off and got in her way several times during Saturday's practice and approached her in the pit area.
Video showed Duno twice throw a white towel in Patrick's face.
Patrick was also shown repeatedly telling Duno, "I just want to talk to you about it!" only to have Duno repeatedly tell her to "go away".
Eventually, Patrick walked away from the area.
Patrick, who has previously confronted fellow drivers Dan Wheldon and Ryan Briscoe after racing incidents, brushed off the latest dustup, saying, "I just wanted to know if she saw me out there."

I have to agree. The best way to settle a score with someone is to defeat them, plain and simple.
Removing sex from the picture, how do you think Duno feels about being referred-to in a headline as “Other Female Driver.” LOL
The best way for them to settle this score is to strip down and have a jello wrestling contest.
I’d say they both are not guilty.
Patrick is kind of like the magic negro. She thinks everyone has to listen to her, and her word is law. When you don’t listen she walks away spewing, “Brian Barnhart, spelling?, will take care of it” Director of operations or something like that. What a whining little bitch, everytime she talks she does nothing but complain, even when she runs crappy, she complains about somebody else. Deal with it runt, racing is rubbing!!
I figured this would be a story about Deval Patrick’s limo driver.
Danica may be a babe but I get the feeling she is a total bitch!
One of Danica Patrick's resolutions for this season was to be less of a whiner and more of a winner in and out of the race car.
And despite winning a race this year, Danica is also still crying too much. Not only that, she's been whining AND confronting her drivers she has a problem with head on still.
Yeah, Danica needs to concentrate more on racing and stop all the silly confrontations. If she was a man, someone would have decked her already and if she confronts another female they may do the same.
I think it’s time to get a hold of the powers that be at “pay-per-view.” The financial potential is enormous.
Drive the car, don't complain when others drive as hard.
I slept with Hugo Chavez and all I got was this lousy CITGO driving suit.
Danica will wind up in Playboy or Penthouse, but certainly not in the racing Hall of Fame...she’s a whiner and thinks she is Queen of Indy racing or something.....
Mika: started 23rd finished 26th.
That works too! They should kiss and make
Scary... she makes commie red look... good.
Um, it's racing, not a Sunday drive. Toughen up Danica.
Don't you need to have some sort of body to be in Playboy or Penthouse? She's got none.
As in, sponsored by Hugo Chavez?
Somebody needs to run the bitch into the wall.
Nonetheless all the racing goobers would head to the convenience store to buy an issue with her laying on a checkered flag.
She’ll disappear for a few months, surgery, diet, exercise.
She’ll look great.
For a stupid communist supporter, she’s hot.
If you watch the video its amazing Milka's crew just looks at Danica like..'yeah we know and its not her first latin tempered fit", they don't defend thier driver.
Danica even says at one point "its not my fault shes slow"
Milka should go back to sport cars and get off the Indy car circuit.
Yep. Milka has been a "rolling chicane" in every series she's ever driven in, as far as I know, but that CITGO sponsorship follows her wherever she goes, so she keeps getting rides despite her near-total lack of racing talent. Danica had a right to be upset. However, confronting Milka about it had pretty much no chance of doing any good, and Danica is already sort of (in)famous for off-track dust-ups like this.
She was a hazard in sports cars, too.
