For the second consecutive year Juan Pablo Montoya won the season opening race for the Verizon Indy car Series at St. Petersburg, Florida, competing for Team Penske and he is my profile this week..

 

Montoya, who is 40 and hails from Bogota, Columbia, is considered one of the most talented race car drivers in the history of the sport, having won races in Formula 1, Cart, Indy Car and Nascar Sprint Cup, comparable to the success of Mario Andretti, except for a Formula 1 Championship…

 

Montoya’s championships include the F3000 and the Cart Fed Ex as well as victories in many of the most prestigious races in the world including the Indianapolis 500 twice, as a rookie in 2000 &  in 2015!..& he also shares honors as well with Dan Gurney in being a race winner in Indy Car, Formula 1 & Nascar Sprint Cup..

 

In 2015 Montoya tied Scott Dixon for first in points in the Verizon Indy Car Series but lost the Championship in a tie breaker with Dixon based on overall wins!
