Brownsburg, Ind. -  Julia Ballario is set for the final oval of the 2014 Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires season with Round 12 this weekend at The Milwaukee Mile located in W. Allis, Wis. Ballario’s team Juncos Racing continues to lead the championship.

Rookie Argentinean Ballario, 22, driving the #6 Pistas Argentinas/Argentina Art/Juncos Racing car, is eager to make her second appearance on an oval after an impressive first run earlier this year at Lucas Oil Raceway located miles away from the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Ballario looks to continue to build her confidence and gain the knowledge of the oval circuit through the guidance of her team.

“I am really excited to compete at The Milwaukee Mile,” said Ballario. “This will be my second race on an oval track. My experience at Lucas Oil Raceway earlier this season has helped prepare me for what to expect on the ovals and I know I will gain even more experience this week when I make my run in Milwaukee. The championship finale is coming up and I want to close out this season with good results. The team has been preparing me on what to expect on this oval and I hope to adapt quickly to the track. This track will be faster and bigger than Lucas Oil Raceway so I have been doing everything I can to be ready.”
