Juan Pablo Montoya wasted no time making his presence known in the NASCAR world after transitioning from open-wheel cars to the 2007 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Not only did he become the first Latino to win in NASCAR’s premier Series and capture the 2007 Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year title, but he earned the respect of his team, his competitors and fans as well.

Montoya visited victory lane in two style cars across three different racing series in 2007. He kicked off the year by winning the prestigious Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates’(CGRFS) Grand American team with co-drivers Scott Pruett and Salvador Doran. Then, in just his third Nationwide Series race in 2007, Montoya took the checkered flag in Mexico City to earn his first win in a stock car. His abilities on the road course were evident in Mexico, and his competitors knew he would be tough competition at the road courses in the Cup Series. Montoya proved them right at Infineon Raceway when he captured his first Sprint Cup victory after qualifying 32nd, the deepest starting spot for a winner at Infineon Raceway. It was just his 17th start in the Sprint Cup Series as he scored the first win for CGRFS since 2002.

Montoya and his No. 42 crew, under the guidance of veteran Crew Chief Donnie Wingo, went on to amass one win, three top-five and six top-10 finishes during the 2007 Sprint Cup season. The season was highlighted with the win at Sonoma, a second-place finish at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and despite his limited short-track experience, the completion of all 1,000 laps at Martinsville Speedway which included an eighth-place finish. Montoya also earned three outside pole positions and went on to finish 20th in the final series standings.

The Bogotá, Colombia native has seen success in everything he has driven, and Team Owner Chip Ganassi can attest to that. Montoya drove for Ganassi’s open-wheel team in 1999 and 2000. Although their renewed partnership seemed logical, they still shocked the racing community in 2006 when they announced Montoya’s return to the Ganassi fold would be in a stock car.

The 32-year-old Montoya joined CGRFS with impressive open-wheel credentials. He has made 137 starts between the CART, IndyCar and Formula One Series’ where he’s tallied 18 wins, 26 poles, 60 top-five and 79 top-10 finishes. Over his five complete seasons in Formula One, Montoya finished sixth or better in the standings every year.

Like most successful drivers, Montoya’s racing career began at a young age. He started racing karts at the age of six with his father Pablo guiding the future champion. From 1984 to 1989, Montoya captured several Colombian local and national titles in the Children’s Kart Championship and Kart Komet Division. He then went on to take the Kart Junior World Championships in 1990 and 1991.

Montoya first raced in the states in 1992 when he took part in the Skip Barber Racing School. He also made a move to the Copa Formula Renault Series in Colombia. That year, Montoya captured five poles and four wins in eight races. His racing dominance continued the following year in the Swift GTI Championship Series where he captured both seven poles and wins in eight starts.

At the age of 19, Montoya competed in three different racing series’ in one year and left an impression on everyone. He captured the class win in the Karting Sudam 125; finished third in the Barber Saab Championship Series in the United States; and racked up three wins and four poles in just five Formula N class races in Mexico.

Over the next two years Montoya continued to progress up through the motor sports ranks. He competed in the 1995 British Formula Vauxhall Championship before running in the British Formula 3 Series in 1996. He took the checkered flag twice in Formula 3, before getting the break he hoped for—a chance to compete in the Formula 3000 Series (now GP2 and the feeder series for Formula One) in 1997.

Montoya went on to finish second in the 1997 championship standings. The rookie’s impressive performance caught the eye of the Williams F1 team. He was then summoned to participate in his first Formula One test before getting signed to a multi-year testing contract in 1998. In addition to his testing duties, Montoya competed again in the Formula 3000 series and grabbed the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship.

The young Colombian would soon find himself heading to the United States in 1999 as part of a driver swap between Williams and Ganassi. The team owner exchange resulted in Montoya taking over for two-time CART Champion Alex Zanardi at Ganassi’s Indianapolis-based open-wheel shop, while Zanardi returned to Formula One.
