FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) - Juan Pablo Montoya says his issues with Ryan Newman were settled on the track at Richmond last week.

Montoya and Newman were involved in two separate on-track incidents at Richmond International Raceway, and Newman talked of payback after the race. The two had no confrontation, however.

Montoya was playing in a golf tournament Thursday honoring late NASCAR executive and former Darlington Raceway President Jim Hunter. Montoya says it “pointless” to discuss the incidents further.

He says he had been wrecked by Newman many times in the past and had never retaliated before last Saturday at Richmond International Raceway.

The Sprint Cup series runs at Darlington on Saturday night with the Southern 500.
