By | June 05, 2007
Jeff Simmons, Indy Racing League (IRL) driver for Rahal Letterman Racing's No. 17 Team Ethanol car, was at the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) on May 14, first driving onto the plaza courtyard in a Formula One race car and then ringing the bell on the trading floor alongside CBOT Chairman Charlie Carey to get the day's business started. CBOT wanted to celebrate the greening of racing, highlighted by the IRL's use of 100 percent ethanol in its race cars this year.
