The only two women driver's in the IRL had a pit confrontation today in Lexington, OH, when struggling driver Danica Patrick, (who we know does not hold her emotions back) confronted Milko Duno about her struggles to pass Duno on the track. But Duno didn't like Patrick's track racing style and obviously pissed her off- according to reports. When Duno told Patrick to "Go Away". Patrick ( obviously not in the mood to be told what to do) stayed. Duno told her to "Go Away" again...When Patrick continued to stay- Duno threw a towel "in her direction"- that had Patrick unleash some unlady like language- or as IndyStar calls it Foul. The incident lasted less than a minute- but hey, its like the WWE- it will bring viewers in. And more viewers means higher revenues, and isn't that what it's all about. The Video has been posted, and Dano appears to be a hot tempered woman. After viewing the video, it appears that Danica was the passive one in this very mild incident!
