Venezuelan race-car driver Milka Duno rocketed to international stardom when she won the Grand Prix of Miami in 2004.
Last year, she was one of only three women in the Indy 500. Now, Duno has been signed for a second season in the IndyCar Series and is set to drive the #23 CITGO-sponsored Honda Dallara.
It so happens that Milka Duno’s talents go far beyond the race track: she holds 4 Master’s degrees in science and engineering, and has written a children’s book called “Go, Milka, Go!” Remember that old ’80s song, “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”? Well, the New York Post recently reported that Milka Duno owns over 200 pairs of sunglasses. Sounds about right.
