“Stunned shock” is probably the best way to describe the news Monday morning that Juan Pablo Montoya would move back to open-wheel racing in 2014, shifting from NASCAR to IndyCar and driving for Roger Penske.

Given Montoya hasn’t raced in open-wheel since his departure from McLaren’s Formula One squad in 2006, it’s a very surprising move. That said, it’s about as surprising as when Montoya turned his back on F1 to drive for Chip Ganassi’s NASCAR team later in 2006 and beginning full-time in 2007.

Here’s how Twitter reacted from a variety of onlookers, including media, drivers and fans/observers. There’s more to come but here’s a sampling.

    And I couldn’t care less. I wish JPM would have stayed in NASCAR.
