Recently fired Vision Racing engineer Larry Curry didn't have to stand for long outside of Gasoline Alley with his "Will Engineer For Food" sign.

Marty Roth has confirmed that his eponymous Roth Racing outfit has hired IndyCar Series veteran, and former Vision Racing team manager, Larry Curry as its new chief engineer.

In his role, which takes immediate effect, Curry will not only oversee the set-ups for the #24 and #25 cars driven by IndyCar Series rookie Jay Howard and Roth himself, but also will set about restructuring the team's engineering department.

Roth suffered a major pre-Indy 500 blow when a proportion of his engineering team quit ahead of the 'month of May', but hopes that Curry will bring a guiding light to see the squad through both qualifying and racing at Indianapolis, as well as the rest of the 2008 campaign.

    Rumor has it 5 or 6 team members including David Cripps packed their bags. From what I hear the thought was that Marty was a good team owner but he should probably hang up his helmet. I guess Marty thinks other wise.

    I heard the same. Cripps is actually back to Panther, so good for them; from what I understand Cripps himself actually had words with Marty that he thought Marty should not be in the car.
