Juan Pablo Montoya gets first NASCAR win

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Congratulations to one of my favourite F1 drivers, who’s now left F1 and brought his considerable driving skills and considerable Columbian fan-base to NASCAR. His first won came at the Infineon Raceway, one of NASCAR’s few road courses, and I actually watched a good portion of the race and enjoyed it; the zero-areo-efficiency cars (in this case “The car of tomorrow” or “The car of two-decades-ago” technically) do allow for a lot of passing.

Like the great Mario Andretti, Montoya has now won in Formula One, in CART, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and now in NASCAR. Too bad he never won the F1 Championship, but it does leave a bigger crown available to Jacques should he ever make it into NASCAR.

This year was the first year in a while that I didn’t go to the Montreal GP (too much going on these days), but it was a great race. My congratulations go to British rookie sensation and pole-to-flag winner, Lewis Hamilton.

The race had a record four pace cars and all kinds of action in between. The biggest incident was this crash by Robert Kubica, an other great rookie driver who actually replaced Villeneuve. I remember last year Kubica set the fastest time during the Friday practice. It’s good to hear that Kubica got away with only a small concussion and sprained ankle after this

Car crash on my street

I came home late to emergency vehicles in front of my house. Apparently I just missed a car crossing the road and hitting a phone pole. The driver was apparently blacked out, but consensus from the people there was that it was because of a medical issue the occurred before the crash.

I just wanted to point out that I won’t watch the TV Show “Dancing With The Stars” until Christopher Walken appears on it.
