NASCAR fans have their favorite drivers to root for. Some have drivers they like to root against. If you have one driver that needs to be rooted against and just plain run out of NASCAR it's Juan Pablo Montoya.Besides being a menace on track, he is now a menace to the fans. At Watkins Glen,during an autograph session, Mr. Montoya saw fit to shove a young fan out of his way with a hand on his face. This nearly created a brawl between Montoya and Tony Stewart, who objected to Juan Pablo abusing a fan. Montoya was lucky a NASCAR official didn't see it or he would have been a lot thinner in the wallet.

There were obviously at least two witnesses, and NASCAR should do something about it PRONTO, even if there is no video of the incident.

Just don't shove Juan out of the way by putting your hand in his face. He gets upset when somebody does something to him. However, it's okay for him to do the same to someone else.

How about the BIG cheating with Joe Gibbs racing! Wow! I havent liked Montoya since he spun out his own teammate last year in Mexico to win. Was this montoya thing in the news??

Not in the news. This was witnessed by several WGI paddock marshalls. Unfortunately there were no NASCAR officials present at the time. Juan Pablo didn't make any friends at Bristol last week either. How do you say "If you can't drive it, park it" in Spanish?
