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.
