Cat Fight Video: Danica Patrick, Milka Duno From Indy Mid-Ohio by Mike Baron
Danica Patrick and Milka Duno are competitors on and off the track. Danica Patrick and Milka Duno are the Indy Racing League's resident hottie race car drivers.
Danica Patrick is American and Milka Duno is Venezuelan. The two tangled during IndyCar practice for the Honda Indy 200.
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.
This time, she picked on a driver who is her gender and closer to her size, Milka Duno.
In the immortal words of Kosmo Kramer: CCCATTFIGHT!
Oh, and to be clear.. We'd call it a catfight if they just looked at each other the wrong way.
The irony this time is that it was probably warranted. It would seem that Danica thought Milka was running too slow during practice for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio and was blocking her car whenever she tried to pass her.
Danica Patrick hates going slow.
Yesterday after the morning practice at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Danica decided to confront Duno.
Patrick, who has previously confronted fellow drivers Dan Wheldon and Ryan Briscoe after racing incidents, brushed off the latest dust-up, and said, "I just wanted to know if she saw me out there."
Lexington, Ohio- Not again! Yep, another pit incident for Danica Patrick.
If there wasn't enough going on Saturday with pit fires, heated qualifying and the American LeMans Series race, Patrick evidently found time after practice for yet another driver confrontation, this time with backmarker Milka Duno.
The Venezuelan driver is consistently one of the slowest in the field. And on a tight circuit like Mid-Ohio, lack of speed is a big problem. Duno qualified last in the 26-car field at 112.477 mph, nearly 3 mph slower than No. 25. Just ahead in 20th place was Patrick at 118.910 mph. Advertisement
The incident, taped by a Duno fan, shows Patrick arriving at Duno's pit to apparently question Duno. Several times Duno seems to be telling Patrick to leave, even as Patrick seems far from confrontational. Twice, Duno throws a towel toward Patrick and once Duno emphatically points for Patrick to leave.
Duno later told the Indianapolis Star, "She can push the guys because they cannot do anything to her," she said. "But she cannot push me. I know if somebody pushes me, and finds my bad side, they are going to get a problem."
Patrick then went out and put on a strong performance, rising from 20th to finish 12th. Duno finished 23rd.
Strange but true:
Jonny Reid had the Indy Lights race at Mid-Ohio won easily. He was on point for 17 of the 20 laps and was in the lead when the race went yellow on the final lap. But instead of taking the checkered flag, Reid went into the pits, allowing James Davison to inherit a victory he led for less than a half-mile.
"I'm really disappointed," Reid said afterward. "There is really no excuse for it. Basically, the yellow came out so I thought the race was over and it was done. I have never had a race finish under yellow like that before and it just caught me off. I wasn't thinking."
Davison was just as surprised.
"I was thinking, 'Has he made a mistake?' " Davison said. "I'm pretty sure we haven't taken the checkered flag, and we need to take it."
Reid ended up ninth.
To reach this Plain Dealer reporter:
Going to slow....?
Every time it’s always some one else’s fault with her, what a drama queen.
Women drivers...what do ya expect?
Yeah... what are ya gonna do? L0L
LOL! They should just text message each other while they’re driving.
I think she should get a warning, then suspension if this continues.
I actually think the two should kiss and make up!!!
forgot my /sarcasm tag. :)
Yes,Yes, The kiss!!! Seriously, there can only be one Queen-
Gee ya think? ;)
Well, Milka was blocking Danica from passing and that was uncalled for.
It was in PRACTICE. I think that if a driver “blocks” her HRH, then HRH should take it up with her sports governing body. But do you really want this WWE drama being carried out in pits??
I love how the wall of goons (big burly male pit crew dudes) formed between them, without saying a word. Reminded me of Chilly Palmer pointing to his holster
