IndyCar's recently announced reduction of the permitted speed margin between the fastest and slowest drivers from 107 to 105 percent was widely seen as targeting Milka Duno, but Dale Coyne, her team owner from last season, told the Indianapolis Star that it may not matter.
Coyne told the Star that he hoped to field Duno again on the oval rounds of the IZOD IndyCar Series this year, but he believes her focus this year is on ARCA stock cars. The Venezuelan driver is set to race an ARCA car at Daytona for Sheltra Motorsports.
Coyne added that he supports IndyCar's new 105 percent rule but opined that for the first time in the nearly 30 years he has been associated with the sport, all but one IndyCar team is taking money from drivers.
"Team Penske is the only place where you can't buy a ride," Coyne told the Star. "Everyone else is or they would."
