Helio walking to the care center reminded me of Danica at Michigan last year. Stomp, stomp, stomp.

The IRL is just filled with babies....Danica, Marco, Helio and of course the chief Mikey.

Of the four which one qacts most like a 2 year old...well Danica gets that honor with her act last year in Michigan. Those tapes are priceless.

Well the IRL has parked the best looking thing in the series Milka (unless you ask Danny Boy who thinks he is a movie star). Now all we have to look at are Sarah and Danica. YUCK!!!! They park Duno but still allow Herb to drive.

Danica is living a charmed life if a late race flat is the "nightmare of her life" as she said on her radio. People daily deal with nightmares, a son in Iraq, a parent on death bed, but Danica puts it in a whole new perspective. A 7th place finish netted her more than most of us make in year. Yeah, big nightmare. My nightmare is that she wins a race.

I feel bad for CITGO, too bad that car can't get Carpentier in there or Jimmy Kite or Buddy Lazier or Phil Giebler or Jon Andretti or Roger Yasukawa or Alex Barron or Townsend Bell or Arie Luyendyk Jr or Tomas Enge

Don't feel bad for Citgo. Citgo backs Milka because of her political and personal connections. It's not as though they're an innocent sponsor who signed with a team that just happened to hire Milka as their driver. Citgo has sponsored her for years.

Citgo is controlled by the Venezuelan government. If you search on youtube for Milka Duno, you'll find video of her speaking at a Hugo Chavez rally, after which she hugs and kisses him. She's a national hero in Venuzuela who supports Chavez...he controls Citgo...1 plus 1 equals...

I just saw the replay today and have to totally agree. If that had been Danica again it would be a major explosion on here. As for Danica, she has two out of three things going for her, a fair amount of talent and a good ride, but sorely needs a big dose of a third -- maturity. She needs to learn to keep her emotions and her mouth in check and just drive the wheels off something. Good luck.

Enge was running times in Kanaan territory before Milka took over the car on Friday.

Milka got the ride because she's a friend of Hugo Chavez. She's appeared at Chavez rallies with him. Citgo is owned by the country of Venezuela, which is run by Hugo. Therefore, no Milka, no ride.

Milka's a sweetheart w/ killer bedroom eyes. She's got a great sense of humor. I'd suggest romantic comedies instead.

Come on. If your logic is true then none of us could complain about anything. Only those facing death earn this honor given your logic. Listen to your own voice over the next few days. You'll complain. All of us do that. "My worse nightmare" is a common epression. For you to take it in a literal sense raises serious quetions about your ability to understand our language and how it is used.

Duno is done for. She must be pretty bad for Mr. B to put her on probation.

Sigh... don't get me wrong... Anyone who tries to drive a 218 mph car at MIS or Indy has tons of courage.

They have even more courage if they find out that their sports car racing experience doesn't translate at all to the Indy car.

However, I watched Milka last weekend carefully, and yes, I think that a significant part of her is relieved now.

Feel bad for CITGO???? You've got to be kidding right? You're saying this just to be a wise A$$ right? CITGO is controlled by Hugo Chavez, who took the company by FORCE. He is an AMERICA HATER. He has called for the destruction of the USA, he's butt buddies with Castro and you feel bad for CITGO? WAKE UP!

I will be so surprised if anyone else sits in that car with the CITGO logo. MILKA is HUGO's (WHO KNOWS WHAT????).....NO MILKA NO CITGO MONEY --- PLEASE DO NOT BUY CITGO PRODUCTS!!!!!!!! don't put money in the pocket of that PIG Hugo Chavez.

Can you put the link in to those videos? I saw them one day then they seemed to have pulled them....
Thanks - Try talking about this Chavez stuff on the IRL site and they don't post anything negative about Chavez, Dunno and TG for that matter - what a JOKE. The Speed web site too, people could care less about Chavez and his envelopment...it's SAD.
