Danica Patrick and Milka Duno Fight at Mid-Ohio
IndyCar, Milka Duno

It's Just as Awesome as We Thought

The video of the Danica/Milka incident has surfaced, released by the IRL itself (for once recognizing a publicity opportunity). As you can see, while the spitting rumor was false, everything else is there in all its glory.



So, in conclusion, Danica was unhappy about Milka's slowness, and Milka was unhappy about being confronted in her own pit box. At least I think that's what it is. Milka's hard to understand because she sounds like Charo.

Earlier this year, Danica resolved to be less of a whiny, angry princess. Obviously, she broke that resolution, which is fine by me if the results continue to be this hilarious.

Danica: No one cares about your pretty face...shut your yap and learn to race

Well, she has won this year and she's in the Top 5 in points, so she clearly knows how to drive and win. Her problem right now seems to be pressure and her lack of knowing how to handle/alleviate it. I'm not sure whether she's putting the pressure on herself or she feels that she has to prove her worth to her teammates or Andretti himself is putting pressure on her, but she is making mistakes on and off the track because of it.

"Charo" is more of a 13 year old than Danica in all of this. Drivers confront each other all the time. The fact that "Charo" acted the way she did makes Danica look more adult. You cant throw things at people Danica reacted in a decent. I dont know what she did that was so wrong. Milka needs to grow up more than Danica does. Just because no one knows the name Milka until now doesnt give her a right to throw things.

Really, watch it again. That younger dude, one time he looked like he was gonna deck Danica. He mumbled something like "move along" or something to that effect. They looked pissed at Danica to me.

Maybe if they touched jubblies all would be better

Danica just came over to talk to her and tell her to get out of the way when she is slower.  Veterans do things like this all the time but it doesn't get press too often.  I'm not sure why Milka threw a towel at her twice.

Wow this was really worth all the posts on it... huge catfight.

You would think she would be more concerned about never being in contention all day or barley competitive, than acting like a big whinner baby about Milka being slow!

lol- he said "she sounds like Charo"

Whatever - I saw no Jello, no mud, no saucer of milk, not even any hair pulling - I have seen more exciting cat fights at the old folks home.  Again, the media making something out of nothing...

harmless! except for the vicious towel throw.

Ridiculous, on both parts. Duno: learn how to drive for god's sake. Danica: you come off like a 13-yr old who's pissed at the dorky girl in school. Danica needs to grow up and learn how to handle conflict like an adult. She's destined to become a joke on the circuit if she isn't already.

They showed on ABC just now what provoked Danica, which was an off the pace Milka's inability to let Danica through during practice. The commentators criticized Danica for her approach, but that's the extent of Danica bashing that was practiced. Again, she's treated with kid gloves by the media and the league, which is what creates a lot of the resentment.

Milka pulled the 'ol Robert Horry on Danny Ainge move. WEAK.
