Montoya enjoyed a successful comeback season to IndyCar this year.
Juan Pablo Montoya was named IndyCar's Most Popular Driver Sunday night at the championship banquet. The Colombian returned to the series after a 14 year hiatus this year, leaving his ride with Ganassi in NASCAR to join Penske's fleet on the open-wheel side.
Montoya ended the season fourth in the standings, earning one victory at Pocono earlier in July. He also scored four podium results and battled for the win in the Indianapolis 500.
Tony Kanaan won the award last year.
