Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Tuesday evening that Detroit based Fleet Cost & Care, a Detroit based fleet management software company for crane, construction and equipment rental companies will serve a primary sponsor to Graham Rahal’s No.15 Honda for this weekend’s DXC 600 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, Rahal said:
It has been a love/hate relationship for me at Texas Motor Speedway my whole career. I have had some really good moments and some moments that weren’t so good. In recent years it has certainly been more on the love side since we have had some great results. I think it’s a great place for us to go to right after this past weekend. I think it’s a place we can go to and have a good result, so I’m definitely excited to get out there and get running in the Fleet Cost & Care Honda. I think the new aero kit is going to behave quite differently than it did at Indy, but I also think that when we show up it’s going to be a real work in progress. I’m sure that from an aerodynamic perspective, INDYCAR is going to have to keep doing some work to get it right. If you look at the way the aero package is set up currently, I think that it’s going to be very difficult to run together but I did not test there so I’m not a great judge of that because I haven’t had any laps there yet. But I definitely think it’s going to be a work in progress and the folks at INDYCAR are ready, willing and able to adjust if we need to, to make the show great. We’ve had a great season so far minus my error in Detroit. I definitely think that we’re in a pretty good spot. We’ve just got to keep it going. A good, solid weekend will help a ton, points-wise. It would get us right up there in the hunt.”
Takuma Sato is looking forward to the the race this weekend saying:
Texas is always exciting; a typical 1.5-mile oval! The last few years we had very close racing and I enjoyed it. We will go back to the speedway and put on another exciting show. We want to get a good result and make up some ground in the championship. Hopefully, we have a strong package at Texas.”
