That doesn't mean Montoya doesn't want to win. He admitted Friday he's starving for a victory — the last of his two career Sprint Cup wins was in 2010 at Watkins Glen — but is focusing on making the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field.
"It's hard because I think we're still in a position where we can make it on points, top 10," Montoya said. "I want to win badly, but I want to make the Chase even more badly. We've got to take chances to win, but we've got to take more chances to score big."
