12:01 PM ET 05.01 | Juan Pablo Montoya and Ryan Newman don't like each other. At least that's how it looked Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway, where Newman had a strong car early and nudged the pole-sitting Montoya into the wall 108 laps into the race. Montoya retaliated 130 laps later by spinning Newman into the wall in turn 3. Newman later made contact with Kurt Busch while trying to get his car turned around, but his anger on his radio was directed toward Montoya, with whom he has something of a history. "I can't believe they're not going to black flag that 42 car," Newman fumed on his radio after crashing, adding later that he was intending to "take care of it after the race." NASCAR did warn Montoya to stay away from Newman following the second contact.

As soon as I saw Newman hit Montoya I told my wife there was going to be a payback. Every once in a while I'm right.

Why is it always JPM's issue?

Newman puts JPM into a wall, and Montoya is supposed to accept it?!?!
Newman is upset because Montoya returned the favor.

If Montoya was a "good old boy" there would be no issue.

Montoya, Newman don't like each other

Now, that headline took a lot of research. I would have never known that.

Well crap. Saturday night I didn't have enough "options" on my PVR top allow me to watch the race. I watched the first hour or so and was pleased to see Montoya running well. But I missed all the fireworks and the eventual outcome.

Had hockey and a UFC pay per view which took precedence...

The way I see it this time, Newman was the one that started the crap early in the race when he hit Montoya and his car got wrecked. The problem (as I see it) is who knows whose turn it is to pay the other back from last race. Newman is no angel and neither is Montoya. This reminds me of the Kezelowski/Edwards thing that went on and on until NASCAR had enough. BNut NASCAR is hesitant to do anything for fear they'll loose more viewers and fans. I say let them have it it until one causes other innocent drivers to wreck as a resul of their love fest. When and if that happens, park both the 42 & the 39 for 10 laps and see how they like it.

Shynloco; I agree that Newman should have lifted a tiny bit to allow Montoya in. He started the duel and Juan put an end to it. I look at Newman as the sneaky dirty type driver, he presents a good image but he is not exactly Mr. Clean.
