Milka Duno will make her NASCAR debut on Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Duno will drive the No. 29 Toyota Camry entry of RAB Racing during the Nationwide Series’ Food City 300 making her the first Hispanic female to compete in a NASCAR national series race in the United States.

“I really like short-track racing and enjoyed those races in ARCA very much,” said Duno. “But this will not only be my first time racing at Bristol, it will also be my first NASCAR Nationwide Series race, and I know that the competition at this level is fierce. I’m sure that it will be a big challenge and together with the RAB Racing crew we’ll be working hard to earn a good result.”

The Food City 300 Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway will be televised live Friday, August 22 beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
