“NASCAR would be something different ... something I haven't done. Apart from Formula One, it's probably one of the few things I haven't driven. So that would be one of the reasons to look at that.”

The other guy, lol, Dario is doing ARCA race only. I'm confident in him to adapt as well as JV in Talladega race I hope they surprise us all.

Retar+ed (OFFENSIVE) and stupid. Good word choices to describe yourself. Franchitti and Villeneuve are both veterans and champions and I myself welcome them into the NASCAR fold. JPM has proven himself this year even though he has made some 'rookie' mistakes by being overly aggressive but that is just his style.

Yeah Go JPM, lol sorry I have to savor when someone says something positive about him. I think alot of the comments these people make are without using any logic. I would love to think they're just misinformed or unknowlegable. Sadly some of them are just plain dumb.

I've always liked Montoya and have followed him since his Indy/CART days. When he was with Williams in F1 I would root for him because he was the only 'American' in the series even though I'll always be a Schumacher fan. JPM and the other open-wheelers will be a force to be reckoned with in the future of NASCAR and it's going to be exciting.

I'm thinking with the quality of car that Chip will provide for Dario and a cup pitcrew that if he is patience and really concentrates of staying out of trouble that he actually has a very good chance of winning. Chip's cars are the best in Cup but they are first class equipment compared to the average ARCA car.
