Montoya would like to run Brickyard in July
Question of the Day
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Juan Pablo Montoya would like to run the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway if Team Penske puts a ride together for a brief return to NASCAR.
Montoya won the Indianapolis 500 in 2000, and challenged for Brickyard victories in NASCAR in 2009 and 2010. He had the 2009 race won until a late speeding penalty on pit road.
“I think the Brickyard would be a good thing. I’ve been so close so many times, it would be a good way of closing that chapter with a good win there,” Montoya said Tuesday at IndyCar media day.
Montoya also said he’d like to give new team owner Roger Penske a NASCAR win at Indy. Penske, who has 15 victories in the Indy 500 as a car owner, brought Montoya back to Indy cars this season when Chip Ganassi did not renew the Colombian’s contract in NASCAR.
Penske said last month the team has talked about fielding a car for Montoya at the Brickyard, but would probably have to run him in a NASCAR race before the July 27 event. IndyCar is off the weekend of the Brickyard.
“One thing that we want to make sure we give Roger at some point in time is a Brickyard victory,” Team Penske president Tim Cindric said last month. “All of the other things are obviously very important, but that’s one of the things we need to make sure he has at some point.”
