Martinsville, VA. Montoya — Saturday media visit

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 42 TARGET CHEVROLET, met with members of the media at Martinsville Speedway and discussed green-white-checkered scenario, driver-crew chief relationships and racing at Martinsville.

WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR A DRIVER UNDER A GREEN-WHITE-CHECKERED SCENARIO? «Sometimes it is crazier. Now with a couple of them, it’s not as crazy. It is still really out of control because it is your last chance. You have to keep in mind that you might have to Continue reading «Martinsville, VA. Montoya — Saturday media visit»

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 42 TARGET CHEVROLET met with media and discussed racing at Bristol, the season to-date, F-1 on-track issues compared to NASCAR, the difference between Martinsville and Bristol, and more.

HOW IS YOUR CAR? «I think we’ve got a pretty good car. In qualifying I was a little disappointed. We’re sixth. That it great, but I think there was more in the car. I got a little too high in (turns) 3 and 4 but it’s okay. I think our Target Chevy is pretty good. We’ve had two good finishes and should have four, but we only got two. That is good. It is what it is. I’m just going to come here and finish and take some points and move on.»

DO YOU NOTICE THE WALL BEING NARROWER WITH THE SAFER BARRIER? IS THAT A PROBLEM? «I’ll tell you the truth, the race line I run, not really. I don’t know. I’m never that that close to the wall. You know when you notice is when you get sideways you have a lot less room. Before, you would get sideways and you could stay with it and drift all the way up. But now if you do that you’re going to hit the fence. So it’s a little different. You still drive it as far as you can.» Continue reading «Bristol, TN. Montoya — Saturday media visit»

«Наш Target Chevy был хорош. На втором круге я попробовал другую траекторию, похожую на ту, что использовал в практике. Не думаю, что трек чистили между практикой Nationwide и нашей квалификацией, и там (на траектории) было много грязи. Мы ехали так утром, когда трек был чистым, у нас получалось, и я попробовал это сейчас, но успеха не добился. Но это не страшно, у нас приличный результат, и мы начнем гонку с хорошей позиции, так что я очень рад.»
