Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal set the third fastest time in the second practice session at Watkins Glen on Friday.
The Ohio native ended the day just behind Scott Dixon of Chip Ganassi Racing and Team Penske’s Will Power.
Rahal who set a fastest time of 01:22.9716s commented following the session by saying:
“Overall it was a very good day. I feel like we made really good gains on the setup. The car rolled off the trailer extremely competitive and that’s what you need because you don’t want to have to reinvent the wheel during the weekend. The guys have done a great job, the car is close. Do we want to be a little bit better? Yes, but overall we are pretty close. This is a phenomenal place. There is a lot of grip, and the track is very smooth just as we left it last year. It should be a great race this weekend.
