Now former Team Ethanol car driver Jeff Simmons released a statement this week after being replaced on the Rahal-Letterman team.
“I want to thank everyone involved in the Team Ethanol program for all of their support and friendship. I was honored to be a part of the program and to have the opportunity to carry on Paul Dana’s vision.
I truly believe in Ethanol’s importance to the world’s energy needs and environmental future. The demand for Ethanol will continue to grow and prosper through the important work of the dedicated people at the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council. They are tireless in their efforts and I will miss working with them.
Additionally, I want to thank Bobby Rahal, David Letterman, and all of my friends at Rahal-Letterman Racing˜not just for ‘the ride,’ but for the opportunity to be a part of something so ground-breaking. It was a real honor, and I wish them the very best.
As for me, I look forward to being back in the IndyCar Series very soon.”
Jeff has been a class act and a great spokesperson for the ethanol industry. We here at Domestic Fuel wish him the very best and we definitely look forward to him being back very soon.
