Montoya sticks to his game plan

8 August 2009

Though he's a favourite to win any time the Cup series goes to a road course, Juan Pablo Montoya knows that patience is the key to achieving his overriding goal - qualifying for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

That's why he plans to bide his time in Sunday's race, for which he earned the tenth starting position during Friday's time trials.

"I think this place is going to be pretty interesting," said Montoya, who enters the race eighth in the Cup standings, with a 169-point cushion over 13th-place Kyle Busch, the first driver outside the Chase. "I think, if you get too aggressive here, you're going to actually (not finish) the race.

"Hopefully, you're in a good position, and when it's time to go, you go. I always seem to pick up a lot of places around restarts, and when it's time to go, I'm pretty good at going. Hopefully, we keep it our way."
