Postby mlittle » Mon Jun 02, 2008 2:50 pm

Its' not often that the two-best drivers during any race get a chance to fight mano-a'-mano in a race, but that's what happened during Sunday's Indy Lights race at the Milwaukee Mile as Wisconsin native Bobby Wilson held off a hard-charging Jeff Simmons for the victory; for Wilson, it was his first Lights victory of the year, while for Simmons it was his best-career finish in either Indy Lights or IndyCar competition.........

The opening line of one of Charles Dickens' novels starts, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.".......that could describe in a nutshell the day for Panther Racing's Dillon Battistini and AGR's Arie Luyendyk, Jr. For Battistini, he took advantage of lapped traffic late in the race and went on to win his third race of the year; for Arie, Jr., the same lap traffic spoiled what would've his first Indy Lights win and he wasn't happy at all post-race w/SSM's James Davison, who's car was the pick Battistini used to get by. (Mod's note....come to think of it, there were a bunch of drivers not happy w/Davison...... :shock: :shock: :evil: )
