NASCAR at Kansas: Juan Pablo Montoya to drive Taylor Swift themed car

It's a love story for Juan Pablo Montoya and his paint scheme for the Kansas NASCAR race weekend.

Montoya will have music superstar Taylor Swift on the hood of his No. 42 Chevrolet this weekend as part of a cross-promotional effort between sponsor Target and the deluxe version of Swift's album, Red (which will be available exclusively at Target stores the day after the race).

Though it's a bit hard to imagine Montoya jamming to "Teardrops On My Guitar" or even "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," the driver praised the design as "fun and different" in a statement.

"It'll definitely draw some attention out on the race track," he said.

Some of Swift's songs might already apply to Montoya. For example: The Daytona jet dryer driver probably thinks of Montoya when he hears Swift sing, "Why you gotta be so mean?" (Well, either that or "Keep your eyes open.")

Montoya needs to be very careful, though. If he and the car have a bad breakup, Swift might write a song about it.

"Dear Juan," anyone?
