Montoya 11th on NASCAR Busch debut

Juan Pablo Montoya finished 11th in his first NASCAR Busch Series race in Memphis, after qualifying ninth. He spent the first part of the race running in the top 10 but eventually got into a wobble and was bumped into a spin by Jason Keller. That dropped him to the back of the field and he spent the rest of the race making up places, a process which involved several other incidents.

"He's going to be good," said Busch champion Kevin Harvick, who won the race. "He's got really good car control and he wants to race really bad. They didn't really like the way he raced in Formula 1, but I think it will fit him just fine here."
