He did win and in stunningly impressive fashion, but if you have read some of the posts on these topics you will see that his critics are still not satisfied!

Hey girl, don't you ever work? Having a martini and watching a repeat of practice. I am off until at least sunday nite. Spent the afternoon starting pediatric IV's. I agree JPM is good for the sport.

Thank's Mindy! Yes I have seen him on David Letterman and he seems to be a fun loving guy with a good sense of humor! but as a race car driver he is as competitive as they come and sometimes people mistake that as being selfish and arrogant but he is a really cool guy though! unfortunately I don't have satellite radio so I missed the Juan Montoya comedy hour tonight! lol, and I agree that he has mutured a lot just in the time sinse the start of the season, The only problem now is that after his win at Sonoma I'm hungry for more! ha, but I do know that realistically it's gonna be quite a while before he wins on an oval, but we just have to be patient and let him learn and get time and experience before we can see him winning races on ovals, Hopefully he'll do well at Walkends Glen and maybe even win that one and have some good runs on the ovals too. Thank's Mindy and have a great Weekend and race Weekend. Dave

Yeah he was funny on trackside live, i thought the crowd was a little rude with some of their boos and loud chanting when juan was trying to talk but he kept his composure and cracked me up lol. I like when he said he hit a golf ball through his wall at his home and couldnt get it out lol. Juan and Elliot are always funny together. He did well and qualified 5th for the nextel race, with him getting used to the COT and a good qualifying position, also with the victory high still in his system....are you thinking what i'm thinking? I'm thinking juans first oval victory this sunday.:)It Could happen. Go Juan!!!!!!!!!!
