Many in the IndyCar garage have been curious to see whether Juan Pablo Montoya could still race with the same championship-winning pace as he had in the series 14 years ago, and Sunday’s result was certainly a positive sign that things are heading in the right direction.

With his fourth place finish at Long Beach, Montoya sits eighth in the IndyCar points standings as the series heads to Barber Motorsports Park.

Juan Pablo Montoya is returning to IndyCar racing and at age 38 is determined to prove he can still be a force in open-wheeler racing.

The 2000 Indianapolis 500 champion and ex-Formula 1 driver has joined a new but formidable team, and he’s spent most of the offseason getting acclimated to his new surroundings.

“I do feel like a rookie,” Montoya said this week after IndyCar drivers were given their annual physicals in Indianapolis. “It’s hard to know how well up to speed I am, because I’ve been running by myself.”

Roger Penske, needing nothing short of a miracle for Helio Castroneves to win the IndyCar title in this weekend’s season finale, will run a third car for AJ Allmendinger in what’s presumed to be a strategic move to aid their championship chances.

But if the plan is for Allmendinger to try to snatch points away from championship leader Scott Dixon, Penske isn’t showing his hand.
