Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal in the No.15 Fleet Cost Care Honda is looking forward to this weekend’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday.
Rahal had a great race last weekend in Detroit on Sunday where he came home in seventh place.
Looking ahead to Texas, Rahal who won here in 2016 he said:
I’m excited about going to Texas. We’ve won there before so that makes you look forward to the race more. We struggled there a little bit last year but we were in the hunt at the end of the race. My hope is that we can be a little bit stronger this year. We have the oval maestro Allan (McDonald; race engineer) on the strand and after Indianapolis, where our race car was great, it will be good to go to Texas and see how much of that carries over there. If we can take a couple of things that we learned at Indy to Texas and they work out there too, I think we’ll be just fine. It looks like it’s going to be a scorcher.”
Takuma Sato in the No.30 ABeam Consulting Honda is looking forward to the race this weekend saying:
I’m very excited to see ABeam Consulting as primary sponsor again at Texas. It will be a beautiful blue car. Since we had a strong finish at the Indy 500, I believe we have a strong car for the Super Speedway and I’m looking forward to that and going back to the speedway. Hopefully we will be strong and can continue to make ground in the title fight. We were able to close a little on the leader in Detroit and want to continue to do that. Texas is always an exciting race.”
