Juan Pablo Montoya is returning to open-wheel racing next year to join Team Penske, it was announced Monday.
Montoya will drive the No. 2 car, the same one that AJ Allmendinger drove for part of this season.
"I am really excited to join this legendary team beginning next year," Montoya said in a press release. "I have had the opportunity to drive for some of the best racing teams in the world and I have always admired Roger Penske and his organization. I consider it an honor to be offered the opportunity to drive for Team Penske."
Montoya will be teammates with Helio Castroneves and Will Power.
Montoya, a former Indianapolis 500 champion and Formula 1 driver, is leaving Earnhardt Ganassi Racing at the end of the season. He spent six years in Formula 1, where he won seven races. Ganassi owned the car Montoya drove when he won Indy 500 in 2000, his only IndyCar start.
Before his move to Formula 1, Montoya won the 1999 CART championship in his first season on that circuit.
Montoya has two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins, both at road courses. He won at Sonoma and Watkins Glen.
Kyle Larson, currently in the Nationwide Series for Ganassi, will take over the No. 42 car next season.
