Well, the source was mostly right.
Jeff Simmons was reported to be in attendance, but the Rahal driver joining Panther's Vitor Meira at Iowa Speedway today was actually the man rumored to be Jeff's teammate in 2007 - Scott Sharp.
Indycar.com had coverage in a story that freaked me out because it started with a description of a guy named Tom Enge who is NOT the former driver. Weird.
The Des Moines Register had more, including this sentence:
Sharp, who expects to sign with a new team in the near future, shared Meira's assessment.Gee, I wonder which team THAT would be.
OK, if Scott is going to be the next RLR guy then we can all put on our thinking caps and surmise who might be able to land the coveted second driver at Panther Racing. If anyone will, that is.
