When Roger Penske rescued Juan Pablo Montoya from the unemployment line to drive the No. 2 Verizon IndyCar Series Chevrolet after the Colombian was fired from the Ganassi Racing No. 42 NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet team, many felt the Captain might have made a rare mistake.

After all, in the final three seasons in Ganassi’s Cup program, Montoya was looking like a race-car driver who had lost interest and was just turning laps while earning a multi-million dollar paycheque.

He had only six top-five finishes in his final 108 Cup starts.
