Montoya gets up to speed at Texas

Juan Pablo Montoya: "It's hard and it's fun, but so much quicker."

A test day at Texas Motor Speedway on April 16 provided Juan Pablo Montoya his first taste of a Verizon IndyCar Series car on the high-banked oval.

Montoya said though he's getting more comfortable in his return to Indy car racing, he's still adapting.

"It's still hard," Montoya said. "(Testing at) Sebring was a lot simpler because I had only been there in an Indy car. I know it was a long time ago, but because it's still an Indy car, I knew the reference points. But here, and places I've been in a Cup car, you are used to lifting and braking and all of that. You have to remind yourself that you can run wide open. It's hard and it's fun, but so much quicker."
