JPM is 11th in points after 3 races, may not be setting the world on fire, but he is doing a solid job

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

Montoyas doing about as well as I expected him to do being away from that type of racing for so long? Course being with Penske iam sure some had higher expectations for him but he may just need more time as this was only his 3rd race?

Nice looking car for Kurt but as I stated before, don't expect great results from him either as he has NO real open wheel experience like Montoya DOES have? Indycars dont drive anywhere similar to Nascars & all the practice he'll do isn't close to simulating the actual Indy500 race & hopefully he doesn't find that out the hard way? Personally-- I only give him 10% chance of even finishing the race knowing how aggressive he usual drives in Nascar, but if hes patient and not overly aggressive until he gets the feel to the car and stays OUT of trouble--who knows?

I'll be watching Kurt & Montoya in the 500 race but Montoya has a much better chance for a good result for obvious reasons? 8-)

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

That's a slick looking car Kurt's got.
Well, good luck to him. Stay safe!

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

Wreck or Finish at least there is a reason for NASCAR fans to watch the Indy 500 and maybe shut up racer1. Kidding racer. I do not think he will win you never know but a lead lap finish could be considered a win for Kurt, and then onto the 600. Pretty cool for All race fans to bring some attention to both series. I think it is a win win for all. Go Kurt in that sweet a$$ #26. Go Kurt

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

Well unfortunately it doesn't look like Montoya is helping Indycar ratings any so don't know if Kurt can either, but the Indy500 is a much bigger stage then their reg series races so good luck & have fun with it anyway? I'll be watching for sure although I don't care for AA & they haven't had much success winning the Indy500 anyway since 2007 when Dario won it for them & then jumped ship to Ganassi the following yr. JPM has a good shot being with Penske a multiple 500 winning team for sure although I like seeing underdogs win. 8-)

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

JPM will be driving a cup car at Indy and Michigan so it must be true. Indy is his fave track.

Re: KURTS INDY CAR.......NICE

Here you go--Indy500 Info on JPM, Kurt etc--Odds to win etc? I don't agree with some of their odds per driver as some favored shouldn't be & others way down on the odds list are easily capable of wnning this race as some underdogs have?? :roll: I do however expect the fact Kurt & JPM are In this Indy500 race to help the ratings thats been declining for yrs, as more Nascar fans should certainly tune in? Indycar for sure is hoping for them to help their 500 ratings as Indycar PR will be crazy the closer it gets to this race? Nascar PR may be helping as well, although I don't see Nascar benefitting much if any from this Indy500 race as since when do competing racing series help each other? :roll:
