Juan Pablo Montoya is moving back to the IZOD IndyCar Series for 2014, the Columbian driver confirmed Monday. Montoya will drive the #2 Team Penske Chevrolet for Penske Racing in 2014. Montoya is excited about the opportunity.
"I am really excited to join this legendary team beginning next year," said Montoya. "I have had the opportunity to drive for some of the best racing teams in the world and I have always admired Roger Penske and his organization. I consider it an honor to be offered the opportunity to drive for Team Penske."
Montoya ran 40 races in the now defunct CART Series and won ten races, including the 1999 championship. Montoya was known as one of the best open-wheel drivers in the world before moving to NASCAR prior to the 2007 season. Roger Penske believes he can rekindle that magic.
"Juan is a proven winner at all levels of motorsport," said Roger Penske. "He has won a lot of races and championships and he has an extremely passionate fan base. We look forward to building on his successes together and we believe he will be a great addition to Team Penske."
Montoya will join teammates Will Power and Helio Castroneves at Penske for 2014.
