I just love JPM fans, they are the best, some of the best quotes I've seen today:
"Can you return all of the 78 gear???" Guilty here. I got a hat.
"Mixed emotions but at least he is out of the circus. Can only hope for the best."
"It's a real slap in the face to Chip, since he and Roger are such rivals..." I love this one!
"i like it was penske. and i hope he destroy ganassi in indy next year!!! lol"
"i was not a penske fan, but i will from now on jaja"
"Is a good fit for Him, I don't blame him for turn down the 78 deal lets face it NASCAR Mafia is controlled by Hendricks" ...wow, ouch.
"Well if that makes him happy then Im happy too!Lets go Penske! Lol"
"Well at least it aint with ganassi in indy,i thought i was gonna have to drop my boy" I agree with this guy, I would of dropped JPM from my stable if he would of driven for Chip.
"I love it. Monty's going to spank them so hard on the road courses that they're mommas are gonna feel it." Don't forget ovals with a fast car.
"I'm sad no because he is leaving but because they never really give him the chance to succeed and show all his talent. But maybe just maybe he will be back next season on a Penske car and show them how is done. For now lest go #2 on Indy"
Some quotes from the International web posts:
From Canada: "Just as I was getting excited about the #78... This will certainly take some time for me to warm up to. I've never been a fan of Indycar, but started watching some of it this year. Looks like I'll be a loyal fan now."
"I have been and indycar fan since i was around 9 years old, but always rooted against Penske, this is like JPM driving for Ferrari for me. Ugh, will take time to warm up to this."
The Netherlands: "HAHAHAH (four letter word) YOU GANASSI!!! This is like the biggest middle finger you can give hahahahah. I hope he can also do some select races with Penske in NASCAR." lol. I love this poster from the Netherlands, obviously I had to edit the four letter word but you get the idea. I would absolutely second that quote.
From Germany: "But once again Juan surely surprised all of us. No Grand-Am with Chip, no IndyCar with Andretti, no NASCAR with FRR, no DTM with BMW or even F1 - but IndyCar with Roger Penske. Didn't hear a word about Montoya/Penske before. Funny how things play out."
Yes he did took us to sucker town. Love that Juan.
Another from Canada: "Prediction, Larson in the 42 car this weekend. After listening to the radio chatter last night, it's a good time to get him used of that piece of POOO he will be driving next year. Q3 and dropped like a stone. Thanks for the Trick setup Shine. That is a F/U Chip compliments of JPM. Good on You Monty."
From England: "Juan said he wanted to have a winning car - there can be no doubt a Penske Indycar ride is just that. The #78 would have brought no guarantees that Juan would have done drastically better than he has done at EGR. The Penske ride gives Juan the opportunity to rack up some numbers in the same way as Dario has As I noted a while back, Juan is younger than Dario, TK and Helio, so he's got time on his side. It's a big boost for Indycar too."
Agree with this poster it will be great addition to INDY. To quote a song, lets just say Indy's fan base is more rock and roll than country.
This fan is very happy with this decision, looking forward to getting back to Indy. I will have three races within driving range. Can't wait, looking for tickets now.
