If you've ever been curious about the NASCAR experience, it doesn't get any closer than this. On NASCAR's last visit to Auto Cub Speedway in Fontana last month, LAist got an exclusive, behind-the-scenes view from the pits of Indy 500 winner and Formula One crossover Juan Pablo Montoya. Montoya, driver of the #42 Target Chevrolet for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, is currently battling for a spot in the Chase at 14th in the standings. There is plenty more of the 2009 Sprint Cup season to come, with NASCAR returning to Fontana in October.
