Montoya Back With Arrow McLaren SP For Month Of May

INDIANAPOLIS – Juan Pablo Montoya, Arrow McLaren SP and Mission Foods will team up for a second consecutive year, with the two-time Indianapolis 500 champion returning to compete during the Grand Prix of Indianapolis while also attempting to qualify for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Montoya, who will drive the No. 6 Chevrolet, will again join full-time Arrow McLaren SP drivers Pato O’Ward and Felix Rosenqvist to complete the team’s lineup for the Month of May.  

“I’m excited to return to Indianapolis with Arrow McLaren SP and Mission, to once again compete in a race that holds a special place in my heart – the Indianapolis 500,” said Montoya. “I had a great experience with the team last year and look forward to building on the progress we made in 2021. I think we have a real shot at competing at the front of the field and challenging for the win.” 
 
Montoya returns to Arrow McLaren SP after competing for the team last year, finishing ninth in the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500. This year will see him attempt to qualify for his seventh Indianapolis 500. He won the race as a rookie in 2000 and again 15 years later in 2015.  
 
The Mission brand will be represented on the No. 6 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet and Montoya’s race suit during both races, as well as continuing to be featured on the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet piloted by O’Ward and the No. 7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet piloted by Rosenqvist. 

“We’re delighted to have both Juan Pablo and Mission Foods back for another Indianapolis 500,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown. “Juan Pablo is an institution in motorsport, with two Indianapolis 500 victories and an impressive Formula 1 career with multiple wins for McLaren. He adds experience that really benefits our team, giving us another driver with the potential to win anytime he steps into the car.”
