Montoya Reunited With Target
January 20, 2009 | 10:17 P.M. EST
It is a reunion for Target and Montoya as he paired with Target and Chip Ganassi Racing back in 1999 and 2000 during his early open-wheel days when he took the American motorsports world by storm, earning a series championship and an Indianapolis 500 crown.
"Target was my first sponsor here in the US and I’m really looking forward to driving a Target car again," Montoya said. "They are a great organization that I had a lot of great experiences with back in my CART days. With the progress we were making toward the end of 2008 the 42 team is poised for a great season and I am really looking forward to Daytona.”
The Colombia native will make his “re-debut” in Target red on Jan. 24 when he competes in his third consecutive Rolex 24 At Daytona in the No. 01 TELMEX car. He and his teammates have won the last two races and Ganassi’s teams have won the prestigious endurance race an unprecedented three consecutive years since 2006.
