SECOND CONSECUTIVE FOR SIMMONS

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 28, from Rick Roso) - Jeff Simmons took the pole position in qualifying, then led every lap to win round four of the Barber Dodge Pro Series race at Watkins Glen International, his second consecutive win. With the victory today, and his win two weeks ago at the Detroit Grand Prix, Simmons moves to third in points, despite missing the championship's first round back in March. Fellow rookie driver Nilton Rossoni of Brazil finished second, and Rocky Moran, Jr., third. Thomas Schie's sixth-place finish gives him a one point lead over Todd Snyder, who finished 10th, after four of 12-races in the $1.1 million championship.
