ST. PETERSBURG —
There was never a doubt that Team Penske would win the IndyCar Series opener.
After the four Penske drivers led every on-track session through the streets of St. Petersburg and qualified 1-2-3-4, the only question was which Penske driver would end the weekend celebrating in victory lane.
Juan Pablo Montoya wasn’t anyone’s first pick.
Yet the Colombian pulled it off Sunday, when he grabbed the lead from teammate Will Power during green-flag pit stops, then slammed the door closed on Power’s lone attempt to get back to the front.
