Juan Pablo Montoya: Surprise Top-5 Finish at RIR

Rotowire.com
Update: Montoya finished fourth in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night.

Recommendation: The Earnhardt Ganassi Racing veteran was easily the biggest surprise of the night at Richmond. Montoya led 67 laps in the later stages of the Toyota Owners 400, but a caution with five laps to go ruined his chances of winning. The green-white-checkered finish saw him passed by a handful of cars with fresher tires and Montoya ultimately settled into an impressive fourth-place finish. It was his first Top 5 of the season and first Top-5 finish in the last 74 starts, dating back to Martinsville in the spring of 2011. Montoya moved up three spots to 24th in the driver point standings.
