And I hope the man takes this opportunity to wear Shrub's butt out. Just treat him like a step-child, him and cousin Carl both. The juicy fruit car is sharp!

Haha. Kyle has no butt :P I doubt Juan will leave Kyle in the dust, but he will get a top five at least :)

NASCAR is trying to use his racial make up to get more ethnic fans in the stands for the normally boring Saturday show. This is the extent of their diversity program.

You mean that you can finish at the back and be 24 in points? You must not be a watching the Nascar Sprint cup series. Start here Nascar.com and tune in on Sunday.

How about watching paint dry instead.
The real and relevant racing starts up again in March at the 12 Hours of Sebring.

I think it was a mistake for Chip Ganassi to shut down Montoya's Nationwide team! He is a career open wheel driver and as good as he is in open wheels, he needs all the experience that he can get driving the totally different stock cars and he could have used all of the hours in the other car to get better and better at it. It was good to see that with the new chassis at Atlanta he said he was the happiest with the car as he has ever been in Nascar, but it was such a shame that the strategy to bring him in for fresh tires at the end just backfired and he diddin't even get a top ten finish!):

Wow Xusanne last time you posted on here you couldn't speak English very well. How times change. Chip didn't shut down JPMs Nationwide team he graduated and simply didn't want to do 2 races a weekend.

Montoya is a great driver.
But you can't win in NASCAR by yourself.
You have to have the help of other drivers and Montoya has'nt been getting any.

I know what you think Frank but why can't you use your real name to say it? That speaks volumes to me.
We all know it's you so why not stop hiding already?

You should try catching the race(s) at Talladega some time - you would have seen Juan, Denny Hamlin & Kyle Bush working together to get a 1,2,3 finish. Here's Jr. commenting on working with Juan at the last race at Talladega -


Jr. commenting on working with Juan: "some of us know how to bump draft really good, and we do it really good and we like to work with each other me and Juan where having an awesome time working together."

Cooper.??? Thats because Juan is used to running in to other cars, Juan likes to get bumped in the rear.
