One of the annual offseason traditions/rituals in the Verizon IndyCar Series is for the year’s Indianapolis 500 winner to have his likeness revealed on the Borg-Warner Trophy.

So it was announced today that this year’s Indianapolis 500 winner, Juan Pablo Montoya, will have his revealed on December 9, one month from today.

Montoya captured the win in a thrilling bout over Team Penske teammate Will Power and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon, the eventual full-season champion.

It marked Montoya’s first win in the race in 15 years, and second overall.

Montoya has made waves this offseason with his first test scheduled in a Porsche 919 Hybrid later this month in Bahrain, although he has been ruled out of competition for a race debut in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans (more here via Sportscar365).
