Jeff Simmons

Simmons to race in Freedom 100 and Indy 500

Bobby Rahal fired him AFTER he led both the Indy 500 (and ran in the Top-5 for most of the day) AND a bunch of laps at Texas to try to get pressure off Rahal Letterman from the sponsor, who he suspected might follow Jeff to a better team. Actually Classless Bobby didn't do it himself; he had one of his employees call when Simmons was already at the track for the next race. The team manager, Scott Roembke, blew the fuel strategy at Indy and Watkins Glen and sent him back onto the track in a car with a mechanical issue at Nashville. As for "crashing too much", Hunter-Reay did more $$$,$$$ in crash damage in his Indy qualifying crash than Simmons did all of last season.  (May 21, 2008 | post #4)
