Dover II. ??? ????? ???????????? + ????? ???????????

???????????? : Thats pretty good. We started pretty bad. We were really loose at the start of practice and we did a lot of changes. The first couple of changes we did, they all worked so when you do that it makes it a lot easier because youre not guessing. Youre not trying to throw everything at it to see what works so that really helped us. In three and four I had to get out of the gas. It got tight coming out of four, but one and two was pretty good. Itll be up there. I dont think itll be pole but itll be close.

HOW IS THE CAR IN RACE TRIM?
??? : It was pretty good. Generally, weve been pretty decent so well see. Weve still got tomorrow to work on it.

WHY IS THE TRACK GETTING FASTER?
??? : Its just cooling down so theres a little bit more grip out there but you know it was really good out there. The Texaco/Havoline Dodge car was pretty good. It was a little loose in practice and there it just got a little tight coming out of four and there may be a little more lap time there.

WILL THAT LAP HOLD UP?
??? : I really doubt it. Itll be close but if we can get a top-five start out of this, its very important if you can start up front and tracks like this, it makes night and day for a good race.

MONTOYA PRESS CONFERENCE

COMMENT ON YOUR RUN TODAY.
??? : It was pretty good, the car was pretty good. We started really loose today. We did quite a few changes but the good thing today is, like last week, we really struggled, is every change we did actually worked. And when you can nail change after change after change, all of a sudden youre really competitive. We just need to work a little harder to make sure every time we come into the race weekend we can actually be competitive straight off the bat.

DO YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE AT THESE TRACKS THE SECOND TIME AROUND?
??? : Yeah. The thing is that Ive noticed compared with open wheel that Ive done before is theres so many different racetracks that by the time you get back to it youre like Where did I used to brake here? And thats pretty hard to figure out, okay I need to come here and I need to do this and I think thats very different. Like in F1 when were going from racetrack to racetrack, every racetrack is so different that you know exactly what to do where here, each one is a little similar, each one you do something quite close. And when you do all those things together its really hard but I seem to pick it up pretty easy so that really helps.

HAVE OTHER PEOPLE THAT YOUVE RACED AGAINST BEEN RINGING YOUR PHONE OFF THE HOOK?
??? : Not really, no. I didnt know Jacque was testing in Talladega Monday and Tuesday. I heard he came on Tuesday. I had no idea he was driving the car there. I know he came to say hi on Tuesday and I couldnt see him. Im looking forward to seeing him. Itll be exciting to see what he can do this weekend. Im amazed his first race, it was so soon, in the truck series.
