When Juan Pablo Montoya guns for his third Indy 500 win, he will do so with Mission Foods as a sponsor.

After missing the past three Indy 500s, Montoya will be fueled for his 2021 effort with an international company that is one of the leading brands of tortillas and other Mexican food products.

“I am incredibly honored to have the support of Mission Foods as I return to Indianapolis to compete for my third Indianapolis 500 win,” said Montoya in a release. “My family has been buying Mission tortillas, wraps and chips at the store for years. It’s always great when you can have a partner whose products you truly enjoy.”

Montoya won the Indy 500 in his first attempts in 200 while driving for Chip Ganassi. Fifteen years later, he took Roger Penske to Victory Lane and became one of 13 drivers to win 18 Indy 500s for ‘The Captain’. Montoya’s last attempt in the iconic race came in 2017 when he finished sixth racing a part time schedule with Penske.

Montoya now has the opportunity for a third win, with a third different owner, in a third Dallara-Chevrolet for Arrow McLaren SP.

“We are proud to have Mission Foods as an important partner of the team in IndyCar,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown. “The Indianapolis 500 is the biggest event of the year and it’s only fitting that they be an even bigger part of it by joining Juan Pablo for the race.

“I look forward to seeing them at Indianapolis and at the track all season long.”

Montoya will team with full time Arrow McLaren SP drivers Pato O’Ward and Felix Rosenqvist for the 105th running of the Indy 500, which is scheduled for May 30 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mission Foods joined Arrow McLaren SP in 2020 and will continue to support the team’s full time entries of O’Ward and Rosenqvist for the 2021 IndyCar campaign.

“The entire team is excited to have Mission Foods extend their partnership of the team at the Indianapolis 500,” said Arrow McLaren SP co-owner Sam Schmidt. “We have three incredibly talented and diverse drivers competing in the race, with Pato, Felix and Juan Pablo. Mission Foods are showing their support for all three.”

Max Verstappen is PointsBet favorite to score sixth staight in 2022 Singapore Grand Prix

Max Verstappen is the PointsBet Sportsbook odds favorite to win the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix on the Marina Bay Street course to stretch his current win streak to six consecutive. He shows odds of -200 this week.

Formula 1 did not compete in Singapore in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Verstappen has podium finishes in his last two attempts on this track. he was second in 2018 and third in 2019. In the first 15 races of this season, he has failed to stand on the podium only twice and has an average finish of 2.73.

With minus odds, the way to determine a payout is by subtraction. In order for a bettor to earn $100, he must wager $200 this week; with that wager, he will get back his initial stake and winnings of $100.

For bettors more comfortable with fractional odds, a bet of +300 is the same as 3/1.

Charles Leclerc is ranked second this week with +400 odds. He has two previous Singapore GP starts to his credit with a best of second in 2019. He is coming off back-to-back podium finishes with a third in the Dutch GP and a second at Monza.

Ranked third is Carlos Sainz, Jr. with a line of +1100. He has top-five finishes in four of his last five starts, but only one of these, a third in the Belgian GP, was on the podium. Sainz is one of four winners other than Verstappen this season. His victory came in the British GP.

Lewis Hamilton shows a line of +1200. His last win came last fall in the Saudi Arabian GP and the Mercedes team has struggled to contend for victory in 2022. They are improving, however, with eight top-fives in the last nine races. Hamilton has two wins in his last three Singapore starts, which came in 2017 and 2018.

Rounding out the top five is Hamilton’s teammate George Russell at +1800. He has not won, but has shown remarkable consistency with top-fives in all but one race. Notably, his only bad finish came in his home GP in England. Russell has one previous start at Marina Bay; he finished last in the 2019 race. He finished fourth in 2019 as part of a four-race streak of top-fives.

The most recent Singapore GP winner from 2019, Sebastian Vettel is a longshot at +50000.
