They did win a very expensive Rolex watch. It must be awesome because they made a point say "They wanted that watch"!

Rolex is the official sponsor of the event hence "Rolex 24 hours of Daytona"!

Wrong answer try again!

Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) announced that Fastenal Company, a leading global industrial and construction supply distributor, has signed a multi-year deal with the team to sponsor driver Dario Franchitti and the #40 Dodge Charger in the 2008 Nationwide Series.

So I guess with your limited knowledge you don't know that Dario is on the list of the 50 best drivers? He he, you're really behind!

let´s see: Montoya won the european F3000 in 1998. Then moved to US CART series in 1999 and won it his rookie year with 7 poles and 7 wins.In 2000 he won the Indy 500 on his first attempt and the Michigan 500 just a week later. From 2001 to 2006 he drove F1 winning at Monaco, Monza (twice), Hockenheim, Sylverstone and Interlagos...achieving a "lame"..."137 starts between the CART, IndyCar and Formula One Series’ where he’s tallied 18 wins, 26 poles, 60 top-five and 79 top-10 finishes. Over his five complete seasons in Formula One, Montoya has finished sixth or better in the standings every year."
Then he came to Nascar and won the Daytona 24 on his first attempt (repeated this year), and won a race in the Nextel cup his rookie year....
Yeah the dude is a taxi driver no doubt...how would your taxi drivers wish they could do the same eh??

Where have you been? I'll be needing you all season, lol. Make sure you visit the Juan Pablo forum :) Now Montoya needs to get the oval win so that can be off the plate, then they'll think of something else bad to say about him. I kind of think they didn't realize 2 place at the Brickyard is on an oval, now he needs to win this year, he's great there.
