Montoya Appears on Cover of ESPN Deportes La Revista
Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates driver Juan Pablo Montoya graces the cover of the ESPN Deportes La Revista (the Spanish version of ESPN the Magazine) this month. This is the second time the international driver has been featured in the prestigious magazine; he first appeared on the February 2007 issue just before his first full season in NASCAR. ESPN Deportes La Revista is the most culturally relevant sports magazine for the U.S. Hispanic reader. The monthly publication is the only Spanish-language sports magazine in the U.S. and is currently available at newsstands.
Born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, Montoya is one of the most popular Hispanic athletes in the world and in 2006, he made an announcement that shocked the motorsports world; he was leaving the F1 ranks to return to Chip Ganassi and race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS). The March issue takes a look into the life of the world renowned driver and what the transition to NASCAR has been like over the last five years. He discusses his passions outside of racing, his goals, social media and the importance of family.
