Montoya to make stock car debut at Talledega
Columbian Formula One star Juan Pablo Montoya has signed to drive the #42 Texaco Havoline Dodge in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series for Chip Ganassi in 2007. Montoya has finally been released from his F1 contract. He tested at Talledega on Monday and Ganassi has announced that Montoya will make his stock car debut in the ARCA RE/MAX Series October 6 at Talledega Speedway in the #4 Texaco Havoline Dodge. The ARCA cars are very similar to Nextel Cup cars and the Busch Series isn't there that weekend. He's also testing at Iowa Speedway this week and will likely run the ARCA race there too. It's expected that he will run some Busch Series races this season too. The Talledega ARCA race will be shown by SPEED on tape delay Friday October 6 at 8PM.
