Ganassi team shakes up lineup with Montoya move
Question of the Day
That’s the fiery attitude Ganassi wants to see from Montoya, who left Formula One midway through the 2006 season to move to NASCAR. He hooked back up with Ganassi, the owner who gave Montoya the winning Indianapolis 500 car in 2000, but the results have not come in NASCAR for a driver many consider to be among the most talented in the world.
Montoya has only two wins in six seasons, made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship only once, and finished a disappointing 22nd in the final standings last season with only two top-10s.
He’s in the final year of his contract with Ganassi, but said he’s under no more pressure than usual to perform.
“I feel pressure every time, I don’t want to run badly,” he said. “It’s hard and I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform and that’s why I’ve been able to succeed at every level and it’s just hard to work this hard and not get a lot of results. I feel like Chip is really putting everything in place to make sure things work well.
“My God, it’s been so hard on both of us. But everybody is on the same page. I don’t want to run 20th, he doesn’t want to run 20th, Target doesn’t want to run 20th. That’s why we made all the changes last year. The shocking part is we hire all the new people and we thought things were going to happen overnight, and it’s taken a year to see the benefits of it. But I think the benefits are coming and I think we’ve gone in the right direction.”
