Milka Duno is making the move to NASCAR later this year, at least on a part-time basis. She has signed-on to drive the No. 29 Toyota entry for RAB Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for select races later in the season. The specific races in which she'll compete have not yet been announced. When Duno does make her debut in the Nationwide Series, she will become the first hispanic female to compete in one of NASCAR's three national series that include Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck.

“I’m really very excited and honored to enter into NASCAR and the Nationwide Series,” Duno said. “It has always been a goal and dream of mine to compete in NASCAR and I worked very hard in ARCA to turn this goal into a reality. NASCAR is the most competitive and popular racing series in the USA, and I’m very proud to enter the series with RAB Racing."

RAB Racing fields a No. 99 entry full-time in the Nationwide Series, driven by James Buescher. The No. 9 is a part-time effort by the organization. It competed at Iowa Speedway in Newton on Aug. 2 with NASCAR veteran Kenny Wallace behind the wheel.

Duno has stock car racing experience, coming in the ARCA Racing Series. She has 47-career ARCA starts to her credit that have resulted in the three top-10 finishes and one pole start.

Duno has been most productive in sports car racing. She has eight-career wins between the American Le Mans Series and Grand-Am, which have since merged. She competed in 44 Rolex Grand-Am races, posting three wins, while winning five ALMS races in 20 starts. After racing in Grand-Am and ALMS, Duno competed in the IndyCar Series between 2007 and 2010. In all she ran 43 races in that series.
