Juan Pablo Montoya earns NASCAR pole at Watkins Glen

Juan Pablo Montoya usually expects to win the pole whenever the NASCAR Sprint Cup races go to road courses due to his experience in Formula One.

Montoya earned the top starting spot last week at Pocono, and made it two in a row Saturday at Watkins Glen International, the 2.45-mile road course that gave the driver from Colombia, the second of his two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories.

With seven wins during his time in Formula One racing, Montoya expects to run well at road courses, and on Saturday he did, winning the pole for Sunday’s Finger Lakes 355 at the Glen in a track-record 69.438 seconds (127.020 mph). The Coors Light pole award was Montoya’s second of the season and first on a road course at the Cup level and the ninth of his career.

Montoya edged out Kyle Busch (126.928 mph) by .05 seconds. Busch also broke the track record of 126.421 mph he set last year, as did third-place qualifier Jimmie Johnson (126.925 mph), fourth-place Brad Keselowski (126.626 mph), and fifth-place Marcos Ambrose (126.524 mph).

The top 10 drivers in the standings qualify for the Chase, along with the two drivers from positions 11-20 with the most victories. Montoya is 27 points behind 20th-place Jeff Burton and would have to improve at least one position to be able to grab a wild-card spot.

Formula One driver Maria de Villota has lost her right eye after a crash at an airfield during testing for the Marussia team.

According to witness reports, at approximately 09:30 on 3 July 2012, de Villota was involved in a testing accident at Duxford Aerodrome while doing straight line tests of the Marussia. Her car collided with a stationary truck at the end of a test run when it had just returned to the service area. Initial eye witnesses estimated the car was traveling  between 30 and 40mph (50 and 65kmh) when it crashed. It took an hour for her to be removed from the car and she was taken to the hospital with life-threatening head and facial injuries. She was later reported to be conscious.

The 32-year-old De Villota, is Formula One’s first full-time female driver since Italy’s Giovanna Amati with the Brabham team in 1992.

De Villota was listed in critical but stable condition at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, England, on Wednesday and Thursday, after Tuesday’s accident north of London.

The Spanish driver has been treated by neurological and plastic surgery teams.
