THE MODERATOR: Good afternoon, everyone. I’m Merrill Cain with Penske Racing and we appreciate everyone joining us on this very special Team Penske media teleconference today.
As everyone saw earlier today, Team Penske announced that Juan Pablo Montoya will join the team in 2014 as he will return to open‑wheel racing and drive the No. 2 Team Penske Dallara/Chevrolet for the team in the IZOD IndyCar Series. Juan will join three‑time Indy 500 winner and current series championship leader Helio Castroneves and three‑time series road course champion, Will Power to lead a three‑car Team Penske IndyCar program next season.
We are excited to be joined this afternoon by both Juan Pablo Montoya, and Penske Racing president, Tim Cindric, to discuss today’s announcement.
