Montoya on the move?
The most interesting part is that Joe Gibbs is rumored to be interested in Montoya should Tony Stewart somehow get out of his contract and go elsewhere next season. This would be an interesting combination, but I think it would work. Montoya is a clear talent, with wins in Formula 1, Indycar and NASCAR's top two series, he knows his way around a racetrack, and frankly I'm shocked it took him this long to realize Ganassi is not the best place for him to be. The 20 car is very strong, and putting a great driver like Montoya in the seat could mean a winning combination.
Gibbs also is used to dealing with hot-tempered and controversial drivers (Kyle Busch, Stewart), so he wouldn't have any problems keeping Montoya happy. I hate to see Tony leave the team that's been so good to him all these years, but if he does Montoya is the perfect replacement.
As the drivers hit the concrete this weekend at Dover, look for Greg Biffle and Kasey Kahne to continue their recent string of strong runs. Biffle could take the win, but the odds-on favorite is Carl Edwards, who is a master of concrete. Look for either Biffle or Edwards to take the checkered flag.
Though I've said it before, I'll say it again. Don't miss the Nationwide race this week, as it's the debut of newly 18-year-old Joey Logano, aka the next big thing. Four years ago, Mark Martin said he was the future of racing, when the kid was 14 years old. I can't think of a better endorsement, and he's lived up to it in the years since with his performance in the lower series. It should be fun to see what he can do.
