INDYCAR’S MILKA DUNO HEADS TO BERLIN FOR ROLE IN WARNER BROS.’ “SPEED RACER” MOVIE
Latina IndyCar Racer Travels to Germany to Participate in Filming of Next Summer's Blockbuster
(August 9, 2007) - Milka Duno, the first Latina to race in the Indianapolis 500, will travel this week to Berlin where filming is underway for the 2008 live-action movie Speed Racer. The driver of the #23 CITGO Honda Dallara IndyCar has been set to play the role of Gearbox in the film, which is based on the classic anime series of the 1960s.
"I am so excited about the opportunity to appear in such a large movie," said Duno. "Luckily I am only taking part in some of the races this year and when Warner Bros. invited me to take part, I asked my sponsor CITGO for their approval to change my race schedule, which they have kindly granted. I am also grateful to the IndyCar Series for allowing us to withdraw from the Kentucky event at the last minute"
