Martinsville Race Review: Montoya’s run to the front was cut short at Martinsville as the No. 42 Target Chevrolet was just about to break into the top-10 when a blown right front tire would change the course of the race. Montoya was forced back to the garage for repairs on the front suspension due to the tire exploding. He returned to the track 100 laps down to finish out the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 in 36th.
