Graham Rahal in the No.15 Mi-Jack/RLL Honda qualified for the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway in 13th place. Saturday night’s race was abandoned due to rain and rescheduled for Sunday, however after only 71 laps of the scheduled 248 the race was once again abandoned due to poor weather and has been rescheduled for August 27.
At the time of the stoppage, Rahal was running in 12th place and speaking afterwards he commented by saying:
I had a really good start but I got held up a little bit, which is fine. I was just trying to be patient. At the end of the day, I think we had a pretty good baseline to get going from. I was having fun and just trying to work my way forward and be really patient. It’s frustrating to not get to finish the race. I feel bad for the fans. We’ll just have to try to regroup and come back and try this again another day. My thoughts are with Josef and I hope that he is 100 percent again soon.
