Daytona Beach, Florida:

Juan Pablo Montoya gave an early indication of how his first Daytona 500 was going when he keyed the radio to tell his crew, "We're in trouble." Stuck in the back half of the pack for much of Sunday's race because of handling problems with his No 42 car, Montoya's highly anticipated Daytona 500 debut turned out to be a shoulder-shrugging disappointment. The former Formula One star complained to his crew about his car's handling all afternoon, and they weren't able to fix it with adjustments during pit stops. Montoya ran outside the top 20 for most of the day and finished 19th unofficially.
