Indy Driver Milka Duno 'Dangerously Slow': Milka Duno, a female Venezuelan who joined the IndyCar racing series three years ago, is driving so slowly that it's a danger to other drivers (third heading), series CEO Randy Bernard and others in the sport are saying. "If she's going to drive in this series, she's going to have to drive with her mirrors," driver Ryan Hunter-Reay said two weeks ago at Watkins Glen. "There are 15 turns on this course and she's the 16th."

Don't they have some system in place to deal with this kind of thing? I don't know anything about car racing, but isn't there some sort of qualification in place?

They should do like Nascar. Have a minimum speed. If you can't run the minimum speed, you are black flagged and parked.

Yeah, it's the system where, if the sponsors front up enough cash, the driver gets to drive. This isn't new: Danica Patrick had a shit-fit with Duno about the same problem two years ago.

My high school guidance counselor once identified me as "dangerously slow."

Holy D Cup Batman! No wonder she can't reach the pedals or steering wheel.
