HOUSTON – When Juan Pablo Montoya announced last October that he would return to IndyCar racing for the first time since he left CART in 2000, there was much expected from the 2000 Indianapolis 500 winner. After all, he was joining Team Penske – the “Gold Standard” of this form of racing.

But 14 years have passed since Montoya was the youthful driver from Colombia that conquered CART and left for Formula One in 2001. He would remain in F1 until midway through the 2006 season when he made a sudden career change to drive for team owner Chip Ganassi in NASCAR.

The MotoGP race at the Iveco Daily TT Assen will see Aleix Espargaro get away from pole position on the grid on Saturday, ahead of Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa on row one, after light rain disrupted Q2.

A group of riders were bunched up in an early dash from pit lane as they sensed light rain could become heavier right at the beginning of the Q2 run, with NGM Forward Racing’s Espargaro initially hanging behind that group and judging the conditions best for the first pole of his Grand Prix career.
