Congratulations to former ALMS champion Simon Pagenaud. His seventh place finish at Sonoma clinched 2012 IndyCar Rookie of the Year honors.
Driving for the small, one-car Schmidt-Hamilton team, Simon is currently fifth in the IndyCar season championship with two races remaining. Those who watched him star in the ALMS with the deFerran and Highcroft Acura teams and at Le Mans with Peugeot are not surprised.
Simon is of course no stranger to The Alley online or in print – check out the Mosport 2009 issue of The Alley here…..
