JUAN PABLO MONTOYA IN MILWAUKEE
DO YOU FEEL THAT THE FINAL THREE RACES OF THE YEAR SET UP WELL FOR YOU SINCE THEY HAVE A LOT OF FAMILIARITY?
“These last three racetracks are definitely places that I feel like I can win. It’s not just because I know all three race tracks really well. It’s a combination of that and the improvements we have made as a team as the year has gone on. So, yeah, even though we are still a little over 100 points out of the lead I think we can make a helluva run between now and the checkered flag at Auto Club Speedway at the end of the month. We need to gain a fair amount of points this weekend to start putting pressure on the other guys and we know that’s not going to be easy. It would be great to see the No. 2 PPG Chevy in Victory Lane at Milwaukee.”
WHAT IS GOING TO BE THE TOUGHEST PART ABOUT TRYING TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP?
“With any successful, multi-car team you are going to reap the benefits of having an ‘open book’ policy. But when you get down to the end of the season and all three cars are running for the championship that becomes difficult. Not difficult from the standpoint of wanting to quit sharing information because that is not how we do it at Team Penske. It’s difficult because Will (Power) and Helio (Castroneves) both know what I have on my car and I know what they have on theirs. That makes it really, really hard to pass someone on the racetrack when they know how to take away what you do well.”
