JPM is out of a ride. Txt from Jet Dryer: "Karma's a biatch, biatch!!"

nascarcasm @nascarcasm

I understand. I mean, JPM has only 2 wins since 2007. Any driver with only 2 wins since 2007 should be...OH HOLY S--T don't unfollow me...

One of his 2 wins was a fuel gamble, too.

the biggest redneck here: One of his 2 wins was a fuel gamble, too.


live by the fuel strategy, die by it for sure, but that aside, how many of his losses and poor finishes have come just from pit farkups? I think he's getting a bad rap.
 
2013-08-13 11:32:10 PM
As a Card Carrying Colombian, Montoya is a dick, he acts like a complete ass in Colombia, and when he was told he brought Latino fans to Nascar, he basically said he was not there to represent the community, he was there for himself.

fark him.
 
2013-08-13 11:38:04 PM
Observations:

McMurry is a worse driver than Juan Pablo. Juan Pablo just gets bored and hits stuff... Like Jimmie Johnson

If they are clearing the seat for Larson they are going to have another Danica experience on their hands. They have hendrick power but aren't a contender team.

I'm guessing Dillan is going to take over Harvick's ride. Harvick is going to Newman. Newman will end up with a Toyota team I hear but it would make more sense to put him in the 42 and let Larson grow for another year.

Who cares where Kurt Busch is going?

I hope JPM takes Jeff Gordon's seat...

Never really understood the Montoya fans.

He did very well in a severely weakened American open-wheel series, right at the height of the split.  When he went to F1 he did well...but not as well as people seem to think.  When he was with Williams he got 4 wins to Ralf Schumacher's 6.  At McLaren he got 3 wins....while his new teammate Raikkonen picked up 7.  And even then most of his lack of production wasn't from lack of outright speed, but lack of brains to keep the car on the track.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if he picks up a ride in DTM to break cars for a few more years...

That's what he gets for messing around with the real Murricans in their NASCAR.

I still say that it would be more interesting to put up a lawn chair on the side of the local interstate and watch cars go by rather than watch NASCAR drivers go in circles for 8 hours.

Funny how world known drivers consistantly get their ass kicked in Nascar, Montoya, Kimi Raikkonen, Jacques Villeneuve, Nelsn Piquet Jr.

Makes you realize how good Mario Andretti & A.J. Foyt really were in their day

No wonder Schuie thought nascar was 'boring'. Smart enough not to get spanked when everyone
has equal equipment.

When the Kimi Raikkonen took a Formula One sabbatical at the end of 2009, the Finn tried just about every kind of Motorsport you could think of. In 2011, while still doing the  WRC season with his team ICE 1 Racing, the Iceman tried has hand at NASCAR, competing in a single NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Charlotte Speedway.

Raikkonen finished 27th but in true Kimi fashion he was still a star of the show thanks to his hilarious team radio during the race with classic lines such as "We're so farking shiat, it's unbelievable." and "I don't understand how this car can be so hot. My ass is even burning in here!"

To be fair, Raikkonen had that one race, Villenueve hasn't really ever been the same since going to BAR way back when. Give Raikkonen a chance to get used to a car and I wouldn't put it past him to do well in any series. And as for Piquet, he's like Dale Jr, minus a fair bit of talent.

Kimi said he loved driving the trucks, though; the quote was something like "It's fun to drive cars that handle so terrible."

I also suspect it had something to do with so few people knowing who he was, since Ferrari farking ruined F1 in the U.S.

Valid points, and as a frquent poster I often cross paths with I respect your opinion. That said, strangers don't walk into the series and do well, no? It is a grueling series and you can't just spend money to buy a winning ride, nes pas? 30+ races does weed out the pretenders.

/wish Rubenes B still had an indycar ride

I'm not sure you can say that they 'suck(ed)', more lack of experience.  Well, alright, Montoya has the experience _and_ the lack of results, so maybe there.  Nelsinho I'm willing to wait a bit more on; probably won't ever win a championship, might not ever get a Sprint Cup ride, but he at least did it the _right_ way, starting at the bottom instead of jumping in at the top like the rest.  I respect him for that.

As for comparing them to Mario and AJ and the like; different days, different times.  Each sphere of racing is just too specialized now; not a single NASCAR driver could make the switch the other way and expect wins either.  Put Sebastian Vettel, Jimmie Johnson, and Kyle Larson in 410 Sprints, and I'm gonna be putting my money on Larson.  Each form of racing is so different to each other now the days of crossover champions are pretty much over, sadly.  There's no such thing as the 'best' driver anymore.
 
2013-08-14 08:21:08 AM
And suddenly he will gain pole positions and possibly win a race.  All drivers seem to "magically" perform well once they're looking for a ride.
 
2013-08-14 08:59:05 AM
This is part of the natural cycle of things, though I can't imagine changing out drivers will change results much at EGR. My current big puzzlement is how does Jeff Burton still have a ride at a top...err...topish organization?  There's a lot to be said for loyalty (both sponsor's and team's) but his competitive days are long done.

I know he can be loathsome but Kurt Busch has put together an incredibly impressive season. Yet he's stuck. He's obviously burned his bridges at Roush and Penske.  Going to RCR means an added 4th team (assuming Dillon goes 3/29). JGR has talked about adding a 4th but that seems unlikely unless there's some big sponsor that's just itching to go with Busch. I guess that's the price for being a dick. But assuming he's grown up some -- a big assumption -- he's a lot more competitive racer than many on top teams including Gordon, Burton, Menard, Biffle and a couple of others I won't mention.

One of the pre-race shows had a segment with Juablo and his "toys".   Huge garage full of stuff.  I'm guessing one of his remote control helicopters cost more than my car.  Yeah, he has plenty of money with which to drown his sorrows.  For some reason, little kids liked him.  I think it was just fun for them to say Juan Pablo.

The racing in Indycar has been solid this year, but they need another 7 to 10 years of solid racing and decision making before casual fans will give them another chance, as well as armed guards outside of IMS to make sure Tony George never gets close to the facility.

As far as Montoya - as much as I hate to see him lose his ride, getting out of EGR is a blessing.  It's never going to be a top caliber NASCAR team, and if Target cuts back any more on funding, I can see Chip getting out of stock cars all together.  If Montoya stays in Cup - not sure if there's a quality ride for him next year, and I doubt he'd be will to head over to Indycar at this point in his career.
 
2013-08-14 10:35:48 AM
Should be the answer to some essential IMS trivia but NASCAR wasn't having any of that. Did he cut it too close to the speed limit when he probably didn't have to? Maybe. But he's a race car driver.

And if you don't think there's some beef between NASCAR and how IMS tries to run the Brickyard you're fooling yourself.

Indycar suffers from nepotism and you are right.

I hope Montoya heads to Le Mans to get the triple crown (Monaco and Indy)
