Juan Pablo Montoya
October 31, 2010


KERRY THARP: We'll roll into our post race here at Talladega Superspeedway. Our third-place finisher is our Coors Light polesitter, Juan Pablo Montoya.
Juan, talk about the race out there. Certainly it's a race that features a lot of different ebbs and flows, but talk about you were able to get back up there towards the front towards the end.
JUAN PABLO MONTOYA: We tried to lead a lap early. The plan was to run 90 laps on the back. At least my plan. We ran into lap 60, got a caution. Nobody really wanted to run in the back. I said, I'm not going to run back here, back of the pack, so I went to the front. From there, pretty much ran top five all day.
KERRY THARP: Let's take questions for Juan.

Q. Juan, take us through the last three or four laps. You got behind Bowyer on lap 186, pushed him to the front. Can you walk through how you set that up.
JUAN PABLO MONTOYA: There's no setup. You know, it's what it is. You know you got to hook two cars up. At that point I was the pusher. You know what I mean? I couldn't really wait for the guy behind me to push me. It made sense to try to win the race.
The best chance I had to win the race was push Bowyer up front, when we got to the line, try to make a move.
I've been twice here, I've been running second or third, whatever. Every time you're there, a caution comes out on the last lap. If you make a move, then it doesn't come out and you finish 20th (laughter). It's what it is.
KERRY THARP: Juan, thank you.
