Making History ... Duno's NASCAR Nationwide Series premiere at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend will mark the first time in NASCAR's history that a Hispanic female driver will compete in a NASCAR national series race in the United States.

First Timer ... Duno joins RAB Racing for her Nationwide Series' debut and first time racing at Bristol. Duno, though, is no stranger to short-track racing. In her three years of competition in the ARCA Racing Series (ARCA) she competed in multiple races at the short tracks of the series' schedule. In the seven short track races she competed in her first full ARCA season in 2013, she scored two top-10 finishes (eighth at Salem Speedway and 10th at Winchester Speedway) and never finished below 15th.

RAB at Bristol ... RAB Racing has fielded Nationwide Series entries at Bristol Motor Speedway 12 times since 2008, with drivers Kelly Admiraal, Alex Bowman, James Buescher, John Wes Townley and Kenny Wallace.

Hinkein at Bristol ... Keith Hinkein will serve as crew chief of the No. 29 Toyota Camry this weekend. Hinkein has sat atop the pit box as a Nationwide Series crew chief at Bristol Motor Speedway once in the past with Wallace.

Catch the Action ... Friday's Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway will be televised live Friday, August 22 beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network.

Milka Duno Quotes:
"I really like short-track racing and enjoyed those races in ARCA very much. 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."

Keith Hinkein Quotes:
"I'm looking forward to this weekend with Milka and the RAB Racing team. Bristol is such a fast-paced racetrack that our intentions are to log as many laps in practice and to give her plenty track time to get used to the racetrack. I've been with some of the best drivers there are in this sport and most of them can't figure out what corner they're in sometimes when the caution comes out. I'm very much looking forward to having Milka qualify for her first ever Nationwide Series race; we just have to give her everything she needs to do it and that's what RAB Racing has done. I've had some success here in past and am looking forward to it again."
