Newgarden Has Tremendous Respect For Montoya
Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden was delighted to finally get the chance to work alongside Juan Pablo Montoya Montoya as the pair recently tested together at Barber Motorsports Park.
Montoya who was replaced by Newgarden in the No.2 Verizon Chevrolet for the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season has been retained by Team Penske and will compete in the No.22 Chevrolet for both the Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil next month.
Newgarden was thrilled at being able to look at Montoya’s data during the test at Barber Motorsports Park and is looking forward to driving alongside the Colombian during the month of May.
The test at Barber was the first time that Montoya had driven a Verizon IndyCar Series car since the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma last year, the season finale but the Colombian proved that he still has the speed.
