Spoilers my dude. I usually don't complain about spoilers on the internet, but you put it in the project cars discussion section. I intentionally avoided Jalopnik, the off topic section, and other racing sections of the internet so I could watch the Monaco GP and Indycar race. Thanks for that.

To be fair the result was not in the title and knowing Montoya was in the race and his name was used in the title should have been enough of a clue to avoid this thread and a potential spoiler. Good Montoya could have simply been a thread wishing him good luck.

Great result for Montoya, really pleased to see him win again.

I had a friendly bet with a friend that Montoya would finish on the podium despite his starting position. Team Penske has ran too many years at Indy to not expect a good strategy from them. Didn't expect him to win outright so that was icing on the cake. I was expecting Dixon or Hunter-Ray to clinch the win however before race start.

It is all good. I just finished it. JPM is a fucking legend. That was an amazing come back win.

Ya right? Sorry if it threw Ya off but... Even though you knew the outcome... It was f$#&ing awesome right? I've been waiting for that since he was in formula 1.. Although the back to front run in Sonoma, the first year in NASCAR was pretty great... It's no Indy 500! 100% a legend! Glad Ya liked it sorry if I ruined it. But in some ways I'm sure Ya followed him all the way thru and saw how masterful it really was.

I had thought, although it's just speculation, that jpm had been working mostly on race setups.. Maybe except the first day, but he was always down in the mid pack during practices. And wasn't ever really "quick" compared to those setting fast laps during practice... Anyways I was hoping and believed if that was the case then he'd b up on the podium... Well till he got rammed by Simons then I thought I'd watch family guy instead.. haha

I don't know if this supposed to only be for the 500, but it wouldn't make sense for a whole new thread for IndyCar discussion. This race in Toronto is pretty entertaining. How do you feel about drivers changing their liveries all the time? It kind of drives me nuts.

Doesn't matter if it's title gets changed to Indy discussion it's fine with me. It was just me getting excited bout the incredible drive Montoya put in..
Eh liveries... Well to me they are the only thing keeping the sports going. Soooo much emphasis put on sponsorships now days and little towards talent. So nature of the beast I suppose.. it was worse for me watching Montoya in NASCAR.. seemed to change every race. What a pr headache that must be.
