Former NASCAR Cup Series driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, met with media at Bristol Motor Speedway following announcement he will compete in 2017 Indianapolis 500 for Team Penske. Montoya was asked about NASCAR, the transcript in part:
- Q) DO YOU MISS STOCK CAR RACING?
Montoya:"Stock car racing was fun, but I don't need the every week thing. I don't miss it at all. If you have kids and a family I mean honestly, no need."
- Q) HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT COMING BACK TO DRIVE THE DAYTONA 500 IN FEBRUARY IF YOU GOT THE CHANCE?
Montoya:"I think it would be fun to do it, but never really pushed for it or anything, so no."
- Q) WOULD YOU LIKE TO RUN THE DAYTONA 500 AGAIN?
Montoya:"If Roger (Penske) came to me and said we have another car, would I like to run Daytona 500, I would probably say yes. But it needs to be done with a proper team. You know what I mean. If it is a proper team, it would be exciting."
