Juan Pablo Montoya

rsz_jpmontoya_-_2014Juan Pablo Montoya jumped at the opportunity to return to open-wheel racing in 2014 as the driver of the No. 2 Dallara/Chevrolet for Team Penske the IndyCar Series. After all, driving for Roger Penske had been Montoya’s dream since he began racing go-karts as a child in Bogota, Colombia.  Few drivers in motorsports history can match the credentials of Montoya. He is the only driver to win a CART Series title, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona, all in his first attempt. He is also a former winner of one of the most prestigious races in the world: the Monaco Grand Prix.  As the latest chapter in Montoya’s illustrious career is set to begin, he is full of the drive and determination that’s helped him rise to the top of his profession.  “I came to Team Penske to race for Roger Penske and to drive race- winning cars,” said Montoya. “The chance to work with Will Power and Helio Castroneves, two of the quickest drivers in the sport, made it a ‘no-brainer.’ The possibilities for this team are tremendous. I’m excited to be a part of it.”
