It was announced this morning that Team Moore has terminated the contract of Junior Strous for the 2010 Indy Lights season.  The details surrounding this announcement are minimal for the time being.

Here is the release from Team Moore:

Team Moore Racing regrets to announce that due to circumstances beyond its control, it has released Junior Strous from his contract with the team for the 2010 season.

“This is obviously not what anyone wanted to happen, because I believe Junior is a very talented racecar driver and we wanted him in our car this coming season,” said co-owner Mark Moore. “Unfortunately, we as a team have to move forward at this time.

The only hint we have is that Strous was released due to circumstances beyond its (Team Moore) control.  Which isn’t much.  It doesn’t do much good to post hypotheticals here so we will just have to wait and see if this situation remains hush-hush.

Regardless of the reasoning it’s an unfortunate situation for everyone involved.

    This is a very stupid move from TMR, they let a winning driver go. They must have a bad lawyer, with a good contract you’ll never let such a talened driver go. Maybe he’ll drive F1 or IRL.

    I suspect they released Strous so they could bring in Hinchcliffe!

    Circumstances beyond TMR control could mean that some $$$ that Junior was to bring to the team have evaporated, perhaps?

    Perhaps Junior received another prime GT4 drive back at home…

    I think maybe Junior got an Indycar ride, or richt guy Hinchcliffe just bought his seat. Maybe he made some money on it. We’ll see him @ the start in St.Pete. I’ll bet my ass on it! Indycar can’t lose this talent with the Shell sponsorship!
