Give me a break. The NASCAR drivers are full of it. In NASCAR, 40 drivers between 19 and 65 routinely drive three abreast in the turns, which are only in one direction after all. So, it can't be that hard.
Winning, of course is another thing, and winning regularly even harder. But the idea that Montoya and Villenue can't jump in a Cup car next Sunday and drive around is absurd. That's like telling a jet fighter pilot that flying a Cesna is a bit more difficult than it looks!
Hey Death Bredon, how is that comment working out for you six years later?

Hahaha JPM has 2 wins and a average finish of 19.6 over his Nascar Cup career, but it's easy for F-1 drivers to get in a stock car and win lol!

ol jpm needs himself a good team or he'll always look foolish n weak in stockcars! Put the blocke in a hendricks or gibbs car and see the results! Mcmurry too! Drivers of this caliber don't need this trainingwheels team that is egr!
if montoyer don't shop himself around to some decent teams for next season then he is delusional!
