Default Jim Oddy

Just heard Jim Oddy has left the Hernandez team and retired.

Can anyone confirm this?

Probably had enough. Got to be frustrated. I know there is a new car on the way.

If this true I always wondered why he didn't run his own combination instead of someone else. His cars have run the Veney head I believe.

It will be disappointing if he does hang it up but he has been at it a very long time. That team seemed to have it all. Plenty of money, quality crew chief, crew and driver. I expect them to continue to be successful.

Jimmy is close to his late 60's. I think the money is great, however the time spend overseas away from family couldn't be good. The frustration level with the current situation probably isn't good either.

They seemed to be lost at times, either the car blows the tires off or it qualifies mid pack. He told me it was year to year anyways.

This wouldn't be the first time for him to say he's retiring.
