The Formula 1 and NASCAR connection

Formula 1 and NASCAR are both top-level motorsports, but that is where the similarity ends. Montoya competed in 255 races over nine years in the NASCAR Cup Series, winning two, finishing in the top ten 59 times, and finding himself on pole position on nine occasions. Montoya also competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, although his career was short-lived. Montoya retired from NASCAR in 2014 but stayed in the United States and became an IndyCar driver. One driver relishing the chance of driving a NASCAR is Australian Daniel Ricciardo. After exiting Formula One, Villeneuve headed stateside and explored the possibility of a NASCAR career, taking to Rousch Racing.
