Juan Pablo Montoya Wins 2nd Indianapolis 500

jpm

Coming from last place, Juan Pablo Montoya recorded his 2nd career Indianapolis 500 victory yesterday in a thrilling finish. The win comes 15 years after his first. JPM started in 15th position and was forced to pit early to make a repair to his right fender. That put him 30th place…but he made up the time in less than 30 laps. Montoya held off his Team Penske team mate, Will Power, over the final two laps of the race. The 39 year old left Indy cars in 2005 and raced in the Nascar Sprint Cup series before returning to open wheel racing two years ago.

Snapping a 31 race winless streak, Carl Edwards gambled on fuel to win the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway last night. It was Edwards first win of the season, first in the 600, and first with Joe Gibbs Racing. Edwards had driven for Roush Racing since his rookie year, but joined the Toyota stable this season in the #19 Camry. His former team mate at Roush, Greg Biffle, scored that team’s first top 10 of the season with his runner-up finish. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr. Kevin Harvick finished ninth and Jimmie Johnson, who has dominated this race track for many years, had a horrible night. Johnson spun out early on but did not hit anything. His second spin (in the same spot) was not as lucky as he hit the inside wall head on and the #48 went behind the wall for repairs. Johnson finished 40th. In his final Coca-Cola 600, Jeff Gordon could never get his car the way he wanted, and finished 15th. Gordon also drove the pace car in the Indianapolis 500 earlier in the day.

Matt Kenseth Wins Pole for Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte

Joe Gibbs Racing’s Matt Kenseth won his second pole of the season last night and will start first in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte. It’s Kenseth’s first ever pole at Charlotte, but he did collect his first ever career victory in the 2000 Coca-Cola 600. In total, it’s Kenseth’s 15th career pole. Starting on the outside pole will be Penske Racing’s Joey Logano. Kenseth’s team mates Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin will start third and fifth, respectively, with Greg Biffle starting fourth. The final Joe Gibbs Racing entry this weekend is Kyle Busch, making his first “points” start of the season after coming back from a broken leg. Busch qualified 17th. The top seven spots do not feature a Chevrolet car. Kevin Harvick is the first Chevrolet, starting 8th. Austin Dillon will start 11th in the #3 car, followed by Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jeff Gordon, making his final start in the Coca-Cola 600 (where he picked up the first of his 92 career wins) will start the race 18th after driving the pace car in the Indianapolis 500 earlier in the day. Chase Elliott will have another Cup start in the #25 car, and qualified 28th. The final Hendrick driver, Kasey Kahne (a three-time 600 winner) will start 33rd after a cut tire in qualifying prevented him from the final round of knockout qualifying. Race coverage begins on Fox, Sunday night at 6:00pm.
