Dodge still pushing to get Montoya release

Juan Pablo Montoya is unable to test NASCAR this summer because Dodge, the US subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler has not been able to negotiate his release from his contract at McLaren - despite the fact that McLaren is also linked to DaimlerChrysler. The only logical explanation of this is that there are legal matters that must be cleared up before McLaren can grant Montoya a release. If that does not happen he will have to wait until the end of the F1 season on October 22.
