MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Juan Pablo Montoya’s schedule just got a bit busier.

Montoya, the driver of the No. 2 PPG Chevy for Team Penske in the Verizon IndyCar Series, announced Wednesday he’ll make two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts for the team later this year. Montoya will drive the No. 12 SKF Ford on June 15 at Michigan Int’l Speedway in addition to driving the No. 12 car for the Brickyard 400 July 27 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

A sponsor for Montoya’s Brickyard 400 effort is yet to be announced. Greg Erwin will be Montoya’s crew chief for both races.

Montoya was a full-time Sprint Cup driver from 2007-2013, during which time he posted nine poles, two wins, 24 top-fives and a Chase for the Sprint Cup appearance in 2009. Montoya spent his entire Sprint Cup career with Ganassi Racing, for whom he also won the Indianapolis 500 in 2000.

Montoya ranks 11th in IndyCar standings after three races.
