The only thing JJ did in the IRL was tear up expensive equipment. JJ belongs in trucks at best.

He only raced 8 races in the IRL. It was his first ride on pavement. He crashed 2 times and he wasn't in the best equipment either. Tony Stewart stated that.

JJ's a really talented driver. Tony raced on Pavement for a few years before he even went to NASCAR- So you can't compare the two.

JJ did 8 indy races - went back to dirt- and then went from Silver Crown, Sprint, Midget cars with limited pavement. straight into Arca- Busch series. His Arca - he finished 2nd- Truck one race finshed 13th. His progress has been very good actually. He could use some luck tho.

Montoya didn't come from dirt. Tony and Montoya were already use to pavement when they made the transition. They only had to adjust to the weight of the car. JJ had to adjust from Dirt and weight. BIG difference.
