Juan Pablo Montoya Signs With Ganassi Racing NASCAR Team

From the "Never Saw That Coming" departament, Chip Ganassi anounced at the Chicagoland Speedway today that he's signed Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya to his NASCAR Nextel Cup team for the 2007 season. Monotya will be driving the #42 Texaco Havoline dodge currently occupied by Casey Mears. Mears is leaving Ganassi at the end of this season to drive for Hendrick Motorsports. At the press conference earlier today, Ganassi hinted that there's an outside chance that Montoya may appear in a Busch Series race before the end of the current season, schedule permitting.
