Earlier this week it was revealed that Juan Pablo Montoya had been released from his McLaren Mercedes contract, allowing him to test for his new NASCAR team, Chip Ganassi Racing. Not only will the Colombian test, he may also race in this weekend’s Busch Series race at Kansas Speedway.
Chip Ganassi has stated he wants to get Montoya in the car as soon as possible. He is scheduled for 2 tests this week, the outcome of which will dictate how soon we’ll see him in a race. Ganassi gives the impression that it’s not a question of “if” Montoya will race this year, but “when”.
