Great three days of testing at Daytona for Juan Pablo Montoya, after 148 laps the #42 team placed fifth overall.This Hendrick engine is making a difference, I expect a great year from Juan Pablo.

Another thing that will help Montoya in 2013 is the fact that (as announced by NASCAR) the new car will have more down-force on the mile and a half tracks, that's right up JPM's alley.

New car, new engine and an ex-Hendrick crew chief/engineer should give the #42 a great chance at redemption from a couple of sub-par  seasons. (and that's being kind)

I have to believe this is the year Juan Pablo Montoya wins Indianapolis, he should of had two Brickyards by now.

As in 2009 when the # 42 team made the chase by changing from Dodge to Earnhardt-Childress engines, the 2013 season should bring the chase back to EGR.There is no question JPM can drive NASCAR, he just needs better equipment. Now he's driving the best engine in NASCAR, Hendrick power.

Enough said.
