Juan Pablo Montoya ‘2016 Is A Big Year For IndyCar’

Team Penske driver Juan Pablo Montoya was in St. Petersburg on Tuesday to mark the official start of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg track build.

The 40-year-old driver took the red-eye from Los Angles to attend the morning event. Montoya, who was testing a black Verizon car on Monday, is amped to build on last season’s success.

Montoya won the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, the Indianapolis 500, and finished the 2015 season with 556 points, tied for first place.

The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is held March 11-13.
