Montoya improving after Daytona wreck

Juan Pablo Montoya's left foot is getting better after his bizarre wreck into a safety truck during a caution at the Daytona 500.
   
Montoya came away limping after the back end of his car broke and slid up the track into the jet dryer, causing an inferno that scorched the track and delayed Monday's race more than two hours.
   
Montoya said Friday his foot was still sore, but has improved in the four days since the wreck and won't keep him out of Sunday's race at Phoenix International Raceway.
   
Montoya said he saw flames shoot through the car after the wreck and quickly climbed out.
