Juan Pablo Montoya has the worst average place differential at Indianapolis Motor Speedway among active drivers with a drop of 13.86 positions in seven previous starts. He will start eighth for Sunday’s race.
Many of his biggest disappointments came because of crash damage, however, so this should not impact his handicap to a significant degree. Even if he loses a few positions, he will be one of this week’s best values. Jul 26 - 4:05 PM

Juan Pablo Montoya posted the fastest speed in final practice for the Crown Royal 400 among drivers not running full time in NASCAR Cup competition. His top speed was 187.688 mph, which placed him sixth on the chart.

As a part time driver, Montoya is cheap in salary cap games and a solid choice in Yahoo!’s Group C. His speed was only 25/100th of a second better than Trevor Bayne in the No. 21 Wood Bros ride, however, and the battle for part time supremacy should come down to these two drivers.

Juan Pablo Montoya may not have made many starts this season, but he will race a battle-tested chassis at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His primary car was last raced by teammate Brad Keselowski in the All-star race.

Keselowski finished 10th in this chassis in May, but did not make a lot of noise during the evening. Still, Montoya needs to finish only among the teens to make him one of this week’s better values at his cap level or in Yahoo!’s Group C.

Juan Pablo Montoya will make his second 2014 start of the season on a track he has always enjoyed. He finished second there in his inaugural attempt and was ninth last year with Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing.

His results have not always matched his effort, such as in 2009 when he was en route to Victory Lane before being assessed a penalty in the pits or the following year when he crashed after earning the pole. Montoya will need to stay out of trouble, but he provides one of the best values in salary cap and pick ‘em games because of his limited starts.

During the first practice session, Juan Pablo Montoya’s No. 12 Penske Ford was bottoming out hard enough to rip the left corner of the splitter off the car.

Down force is incredibly important at Indy with the long straights. This will not necessitate a backup, but the team has some work to do in order to lift the left front corner of the car. Montoya was only 24th on the speed chart at the time.
