Long Beach is jumping this weekend. And with 3 female drivers, including the lovely Venezuelan beauty Milka Duno, in the field of this weekend’s Long Beach Grand Prix, the race has some added flavor. Danica Patrick and Simona de Silvestro, who hails from Switzerland, are the other two competing. Patrick and Duno add some spice to the event since they have some major history between them and continue to have an extreme dislike for each other. During an Indy Race in Ohio two years ago, the two exchanged words and insults.
Patrick is the most popular of the female drivers, but Duno is an interesting study. Besides racing, Duno, who lives in Miami, also has a good head on her shoulders, earning 4 master’s degrees in organizational development, naval architecture, maritime business and marine biology.
The LBGP features a weekend of activities, including a street fest tonight (actually, the downtown streets, Pine Avenue in particular, will be packed all weekend), and a celebrity race Saturday. The main event is Sunday at 1:15 p.m.
If you’ve never been, we highly recommend it. The food, drink, eye candy and the rest of the scenery is something to behold.

Danica Patrick proved for a minute she could run with the big boys, but a crash took her out of today’s Sam’s Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Vegas. Still, she believed she earned an ounce of respect. “It was nice to run up there with those guys and start trying to earn their respect,” she said.
She’s still got a ways to go.

She was the star of the show before the race, but when it ended Kyle Busch was the man. He beats Greg Biffle in a wild finish at Fontana that surely geeked up the locals for more on Sunday.
Our pick for the main event tomorrow: We like the Rainbow Warrior. It’s about time, right dude?
