BREAKING NEWS --- BREAKING NEWS Chip Ganassi is in the process of announcing that his 'new' driver for the 2007 NASCAR season is going to be Juan Pablo Montoya of Formula 1 fame. Wow! That's huge. This is not a new driver - Montoya is a seasoned, great driver.
A year or so ago, Montoya and Jeff Gordon did a press event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where Jeff drove Montoya's F1 car and Montoya drive the Dupont Chevy so he's had a little time behind the wheel of a much different car than his F1 car. He admits it is going to take time for him to get the hang of this. But, don't bet that it will take him long. He's a great racing talent. A true racer can adapt to any car with little time.
Wow. This is huge, huge news. 2007 is going to be a heck of a year in NASCAR, not like this year isn't...it's always great! Welcome to NASCAR Juan Pablo! See you on the starting line in Daytona in February!
Just a speedy tidit for today. Thanks for stopping by.
