IndyCar racer Milka Duno will make her stock car debut next month at Daytona.
The Venezuelan is set to drive the #90 Toyota Camry for Braun Racing, following a successful first test with the outfit at the same track in December.
Duno had told AUTOSPORT last month that a deal was dependent on sponsorship money, but an agreement has finally been struck for the female racer to compete at Daytona.
"For the first time in a while I fell I have a competitive car," said Duno following the test. "In IndyCars that had not been the case recently. I hope I can make the most of it at Daytona and back up my performance from the December test."
Duno plans a further ARCA test at Talladega next week, before heading to Daytona for the race, where she will join IndyCar rival Danica Patrick, who is set to make her stock car debut in the same event, driving for JR Motorsports.
Plans for further stock car outings for Duno are still in the works, including the possibility of entering NASCAR Nationwide Series races.
