3-year IZOD IndyCar Series vet Milka Duno has signed with Dale Coyne Racing to compete full-time for the first time in 2010 . Duno is slated to run the #18 Honda-Powered Dallara, and will be joined by a teammate who will pilot the #19 and be announced next week. Dale Coyne Racing who won it's first race in it's 25-year history last season will mark the 3rd team in which Duno has competed, alongside SAMAX Motorsports and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing.
“I look forward to competing with Dale Coyne Racing. I’ve had the chance to speak with Dale and the team to discuss goals for the season and we are in harmony in all areas. For the past three seasons I’ve only run partial schedules and I’m anxious to be competing in all the races this year. Doing so builds momentum and maintains consistency that I feel is a key factor to good results. The full schedule includes seven races at tracks that I have yet to compete on so I will be doing my absolute best to learn these new tracks as quickly as possible. This full season will be challenging – but I’m very thankful for the opportunity!” -Milka Duno
“We are very excited about the challenges and rewards that lie ahead for Milka. We have seen Milka’s competitiveness on the ovals and now we look forward to focusing on the road course effort on a full time basis in 2010.” -Dale Coyne
