Pocono Raceway - Day 1

 Team Penske announced today that Juan Pablo Montoya will join the team in 2014. Montoya will drive the No. 2  Team Penske  IndyCar for the full season as he will join Will Power and three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves in the team’s IZOD IndyCar Series lineup beginning next season.

Montoya has spent the last 8 years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with Penske’s archrival Chip Ganassi’s team. He has gotten two wins, both in road-courses and reached the Chase for the Sprint Cup in one opportunity. In CART, Montoya won the 1999 championship and after that, he raced the 2000 Indianapolis 500 in IndyCar, event that he won in a commanding way. Both successes were with Ganassi. After CART, Montoya left for Formula 1 where he won races for Williams and Mclaren. He is one of the most accomplished drivers in the world, winning the Indy 500, the 24 Hours of Daytona and the Monaco Grand Prix.

For colombian fans, Montoya is going to the best team in IndyCar. At least the most accomplished:  Team Penske  is one of the most successful teams in the history of professional sports. Competing in a variety of disciplines, cars owned and prepared by Penske Racing have produced 377 major race wins, 433 pole positions and 24 National Championships. The team has also earned 15 Indianapolis 500 victories in its storied history.
