The Associated Press has learned Juan Pablo Montoya will not be back for an eighth NASCAR season with Chip Ganassi. Ganassi President Steve Lauletta announced the decision to the team Tuesday, multiple people present for the announcement told AP on the condition of anonymity because Ganassi does not comment on driver contracts. Montoya has been with Ganassi since 2006 when he abruptly left Formula One for NASCAR. It's his second stint with the car owner - the two teamed together to win the 1999 CART championship and 2000 Indianapolis 500 before Montoya moved to F1. But results in NASCAR have been sporadic. Montoya has just two wins in 239 career starts and his best season finish was eighth in 2009.
