What doJuan Pablo Montoya, Tacos and College Football have in common?

In case you missed it.....ESPN college football analyst Bob Griese was suspended for one week for a "racial" comment made about Juan Pablo Montoya during last Saturday's Ohio State game. ESPN was doing a promo during the football game, showing the top 5 drivers in the chase. Montoya fell out of the top 5 after his bad race in Charlotte. Going into the Martinsville race, Montoya dropped to number 6 in standings. So when the other announcer asked where Montoya was, Griese responded "He's out having a Taco"

Here is the audio clip of the comment and Griese's semi-awkward apology.

And what did Montoya have to say about this? "I don't know who it is. Somebody mentioned it to me. I don't really care to tell you the truth. I don't. I could say I spent the last three hours eating tacos, but I was actually driving a car. That's OK, I don't care."
