CONCORD, NC (April 22, 2012) – NASCAR and Juan Pablo Montoya partnered with Univision – the leading Spanish language network and one of the top five networks in the U.S. regardless of language – for NASCAR’s first Spanish language television integration.
The television show, “Nuestra Belleza Latina,” which is in its sixth season, features 12 young women competing in a series of challenges covering a variety of topics – from diction to physical fitness – to become the next Nuestra Belleza Latina (Our Latin Beauty).
In this week’s challenge, Montoya drives contestants to their limits at Homestead- Miami Speedway as they take the passenger seat at over 180 miles per hour while attempting to recite NASCAR facts from memory. Montoya also contributed in deciding who did the best job in this particular challenge.
Tune in to Univision this Sunday, April 22 at 8 p.m. ET to watch NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Juan Pablo Montoya on the network’s leading reality show “Nuestra Belleza Latina”
