The cheapest shots of the night might have been the ones Juan Pablo Montoya delivered to Regan Smith.
After knocking Smith into the wall during the Sprint Showdown, Montoya said: "I was beside him (Smith) about five or six times and he never gave me any room. I mean, let's be realistic. He wasn't going to make it. And it got to the point, you know, when a guy gets four or five times you've got to let him go.
"And he just doesn't understand that. That's what happens when you start by a lottery and not by performance."
Responded Smith: "I haven't seen a replay. The replay in my head says that he (Montoya) wasn't clear and he was trying to take some space that wasn't his."
I saw the replay. The mistake was Montoya's.
