Graham Rahal, driver of the No.15 PeopleReady Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda says that the team is going for the win in Portland on Sunday after scoring his second consecutive road course P1 Award.

Rahal missed out on the win on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course last month, and he will be hoping to put that right on Sunday.

What can I say? I mean, once again Honda has just done an amazing job for us, they’ve continued to push so hard. For us on the #15 car, to get our second NTT P1 award of the year is a great accomplishment. Obviously tomorrow, we know that fuel mileage is going to be good. We need to keep our tires underneath us and then see what this race has in store for us. We led a lot of this thing two years ago, and it would be good to get on the top step of the podium at Portland. Great job to everybody to HPD, to Honda, everything they’ve done to continue to push forward and push our team forward has meant a lot. Let’s go get a win!”

Rahal went on to say:

“Yesterday, we really struggled on the red tires. “This morning we saved a set of blacks (primary tires) compared to everyone else, and it just worked out to be able to go to the new blacks (in qualifying). Everybody has pushed real hard to get our team back to this point, and it’s nice to have two poles here at the end of the year.”
