Footnotes

  • Juan Pablo Montoya is a Colombian race car driver known internationally for participating in and winning Formula One and CART race competitions.
    The highlights of his career include winning the International F3000 championship in 1998, and the CART Championship Series in 1999, as well as victories in other prestigious races. He is the only driver to have won the premier North American open-wheel CART title, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona, all at the first attempt.

    Montoya is one of two drivers to have won the CART title in his rookie year, the first being Formula One World Champion Nigel Mansell in 1993. He has also equaled Graham Hill's feat of winning both a Monaco Grand Prix and an Indianapolis 500; Montoya is currently one of only two active drivers (along with Jacques Villeneuve) who has won two legs of the Triple Crown of Motorsport.

    Montoya has also become a crossover race winner by winning races (starting in each case in his rookie year) in Formula One, CART, Indy Car, Grand-AM and NASCAR equaling in that respect Mario Andretti's caliber of success (except for the F1 World Championship); And shares honors as well with Dan Gurney in being IndyCar/F1/NASCAR race winner. Montoya is also the only driver to have competed in all three major events at Indianapolis, finishing fourth or better in each event. He finished 1st in the Indianapolis 500, 2nd in the Brickyard 400, and 4th in the US Grand Prix.
