Juan Pablo Montoya
Widely considered one of the top drivers of this era, Juan Pablo Montoya currently drives the No. 2 IndyCar for Pensky Racing Team in the IndyCar Series. He is known internationally for his participation in Formula One™, Indycar, NASCAR, CART & F3000.
Born in Bogotá, Columbia, his father Pablo taught him the techniques of karting from an early age and Montoya quickly developed an enthusiasm for racing. Montoya has participated in many different racing series throughout the world. He earned 7 wins and 30 podium finishes throughout his Formula 1™ career before moving in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and winning Rookie of the Year during his first season in 2007.
He is the only driver in history to win a CART Series title, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona all in his first attempt. He has also captured first at the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix in 2003 as a driver for the Williams-BMW team. Montoya’s driving resumé is vast and impressive with numerous wins across the board deeming him a figurehead in the world of racing.
After his NASCAR Sprint Cup run, he joined Team Pensky in 2014 and is currently competing in the IndyCar Series driving the No. 2 Dallara-Chevrolet. He captured 2nd in the series only after a tie with Scott Dixon who won three races over Montoya’s two back in 2015.
At the early age of 14, Prost started his motor sports career in karting and is now regarded as one of the greatest F1™ drivers in history. Prost launched his career by winning both the French and European Formula Three Championships and later joined Team McLaren in Formula 1™ at the age of 24. He then went on to win four Formula 1™ Driver’s Championships 1985, 1986, 1989 and 1993, driving for well-known F1™ teams such as McLaren, Renault, Ferrari, and Williams, and receive the World Sports Award of the Century in the motor sport category in 1999.
Known for his relaxed style behind the wheel, Prost would hold the title for most Grand Prix victories until 2001. Prost remained heavily involved in the sport after retiring in 1993, working various jobs such PR for Renault, and Technical Adviser at McLaren.
