By | June 01, 2006
Jeff Simmons has joined the Rahal Letterman Racing (RLR) team of the Indy Racing League. He will be the driver for No. 17 Team Ethanol Honda/Panoz/Firestone. Simmons succeeds the late Paul Dana, who lost his life in a crash during practice March 27. "I believe the best way for me to honor [Dana] is to do everything I can to carry on the cause in which Paul believed so deeply and gave his life to promote," Simmons said.
