Montoya Has Message For Haters

Let’s see what’s in the Morning Memo today:

Memo: Fixing As Cool As Crashing

Let’s see what’s in the Morning Memo today:
I would have loved to have had a front-row seat for what went on at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Not on the race track, but in the garages. Would have loved to have pushed up a nice, comfy-leather chair, ordered a pizza and sat and watched as [...]
