Montgomery said he enjoys the openness of the track while racing outdoors because the fresh air is easier to breathe.

“In the 400 indoors, there’s a lot of bumping going on,” he said. “In outdoors, it’s you in your own lane. There is not somebody trying to cut you off or beating you to the break. We don’t have any of that anymore.”
