Ganassi to shut down Montoya's Busch team after Watkins Glen

8/1/2007

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Juan Pablo Montoya will race in his final
Busch Series event next week at Watkins Glen, then the team will
stop competing.

Chip Ganassi Racing officials said Wednesday the No. 42 Busch
program was formed only to help Montoya adjust to NASCAR after six
seasons in Formula One. He drove the car to a win in March on the
road course in Mexico City, and will try for another one in Watkins
Glen, N.Y., next Saturday.

After that, Ganassi will stop operating the team because the
remainder of the schedule isn't a good fit with Montoya's Nextel
Cup season.
