Juan Pablo Montoya will be the fourth and final driver at Meyer Shank Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 2021.
The team has got hold of an Acura DPi car for the upcoming season – a car that Montoya has three years of experience in.
They have already signed a contract with Montoya’s teammate through those three seasons, Dane Cameron. Cameron and Olivier Pla will race the car full season, while Montoya will help at the Michelin Endurance Cup rounds, that are longer than the standard 2 hours and 40 minutes.
A. J. Allmendinger will join the outfit for the Daytona 24 hours, as the fourth driver. It’s become a tradition for the team, to run Allmendinger at that race, while he focuses on his NASCAR and commentator jobs for the rest of the year.
That means that Montoya won’t be racing for his new team in the FIA WEC, DragonSpeed, who will run at Daytona with an LMP2 car. Eric Lux is still the only confirmed driver for that team.
Dane Cameron and Juan Pablo Montoya won the IMSA championship in 2019 in an Acura ARX-05 DPi car, while teammates Helio Castroneves and Ricky Taylor are the defending champions in the same car model.
