Montoya back at Indy intent on winning for Penske

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -

Juan Pablo Montoya is back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

One night only in a guest star role for Team Penske.

The Colombian is entered in the Brickyard 400 for the explicit purpose of winning at Indy in NASCAR and giving team owner Roger Penske one of the few trophies missing from his collection.

Montoya is not looking for a good points day on Sunday and doesn't care about a top-10 finish. It's checkered flag or bust.

Although he won the Indy 500 in 2000, Montoya was winless in seven NASCAR starts at the Brickyard and let two near-victories slip away.
