Pittsboro, Ind. - Team Moore Racing announced today that Jimmy Simpson will be onboard the #22 TMR/ReedSmith/XtremeDrilling&Coil car for the Mid-Ohio Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires double-header weekend August 2-3. The 21-year-old Simpson is a veteran of quarter midgets, karts and Atlantic cars, as well as,running Indy Lights with TMR for the Freedom 100 in 2013. Simpson is also a full-time engineering student at Purdue University.

“I am thrilled to be back behind the wheel of the #22 TMR car at the historic Mid-Ohio track for my first Indy Lights road course race," said Simpson. "I am very excited to be a part of such a great team for this event. I can’t thank Team Moore Racing enough for giving me this opportunity. I would also like to thank Xtreme Drilling & Coil, Indy Motorsports Supply Inc., Polen Designs, The Joseph Maley Foundation, and ReedSmith LLP for their support.”

“Everyone at TMR is excited to have Jimmy compete for us at Mid-Ohio in our 22 car,” added Mark Moore. "I’ve been a long-time Atlantic fan and he has proven himself in that series. He did a great job for us last year at Indy. He also did the open test with us in 2014 at Indy and he did very well, too. He has vast experience on road courses and oval races, which makes him very unique in our sport at this time and a perfect candidate to go INDYCAR racing in the future. I wish we had more opportunity to test him before this weekend, but I think with the open test on Thursday and his past experience with Atlantic races at Mid-Ohio, his familiarity with the team, it should be a great weekend for him. We had a very good test with Zack Meyer at Mid-Ohio in June. Adding a second car this weekend is an excellent way for us to build on that and have some great results for both drivers and the team."
