Juan Pablo Montoya has had 218 chances to win on an oval in NASCAR. He coughed up two legitimate opportunities to win at Indianapolis, and probably never had a realistic shot at Victory Lane in the others.

He was solid in 2006 and 2007, but he's been in a spiral downhill since. Im sure he will get his act together once his team consistently gives him good cars.

My mistake. 2009 and 2010 were his strong years.

If I remember correctly, I think he was robbed of an Indy win. Nascar was dinging every other car that race for speeding on pit road. Other drivers came to his defense and it was controversial at best.

And 2010 was also the year Jamie McMurray won the Daytona 500 and Brickyard. IMO, sounds like an upper management issue when both teams swim or sink together.

Juan Pablo Montoya is a great American, and a better driver than Jr Earnhardt!

Oh Yes he is such a great driver he can run over and blow up the equiptment on a track
and shut down a race for hours.He has to much temper causing him to go after drivers when he don't get his way.

You must not watch NASCAR much. Everyone knows but you that something broke in the 42 which caused his car to veer into the jet dryer.

At the speed those cars go, do you think he had time to control the car? You can bet if Danica hits the jet dryer at some point, she will blame the jet dryer.

What a stupid headline. I would think that would apply to every driver out there racing.

You know how the rest of the world views Americans as ignorant... because Americans are ignorant? You're just proving their point.

The commentators said on at least seventy occasions during the live broadcast that it was clearly a mechanical failure and JPM had absolutely nothing that he could do.

There isn't a driver in the field that can steer away from a crash in a car that suffered a critical mechanical failure rendering the car uncontrollable.

The Montoya vs Jet Dryer crash was the high light of the 2012 NASCAR season; Helton and France shouldhave given him bonus points and cash for the crash.

I'm one of those and I don't consider myself a beaner. But, I know what you are - a big POS redneck.

That's clever, CowChip but I'm not going to give you credit for it as an original thought.

I guess something breaks when he loses his temper and goes after other drivers.I know quite a few drivers who hate to see him even close to them.
