Juan Pablo Montoya talks about winning the Indy 500 – and $2.4 million – from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Montoya won the race over the weekend. It was his second Indy 500 win. His first Indy 500 win occurred when he was a rookie in 2000. The 15-year gap between his wins is the longest stretch for an Indy 500 driver. Montoya said the win was sweeter the second time around and that it was cool to have his Verizon (VZ) car in the victory lane. Montoya’s victory extends Roger Penske’s record of Indy 500 victories to 16. Montoya’s $2.4 million check was part of a total purse of $13.4 million. Montoya says he didn’t follow the stock market much, but might now, as he considers where to invest his winnings.
