Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal in the No.15 Gehl Honda was left disappointed with his two lap average during qualifying for the Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway in Newton on Saturday afternoon.
Rahal will start Sunday’s race from 10th place on the grid having set a two lap qualifying average speed of 185.210MPH and speaking following the session, he commented by saying:
I’m disappointed because I think we had a quicker car than that. We just lost the balance a little bit in qualifying but the GEHL boys will continue to work hard to give us the best race car they can. We didn’t get a lot of running in this morning in race trim so hopefully we will be able to do that tonight. It’s not that the car was bad, but I know we had better than that. The balance changed a lot over the run. It looks like we ran more trimmed than most guys but we wanted to take a swing for the fences.
