DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Forgive Juan Pablo Montoya if he doesn't find the fireball jokes very funny.
He's just totally over them a year after crashing into a jet dryer during the Daytona 500.
The wreck caused a raging inferno that stopped the race for two hours. It made Montoya a punch-line and set the tone for another disappointing season that Montoya is eager to put behind him.
The former Formula One star finished 22nd in points last year with only two top-10 finishes all season.
The Colombian driver has yet to see the results he's used to since moving to NASCAR with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2007. He's got just two wins in the Sprint Cup Series, both on road courses, and has made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship only once.
