Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal in the No.15 PennGrade Honda says he was proud that the team were able to get the car into the Firestone Fast Six shootout following a number of issues during the weekend.
Rahal will start the race just behind Alexander Rossi and speaking following the session after setting a time of 01:06.7562s Rahal stated:
o be able to fight through the things we did as a single car team makes me proud because we tried some big changes over night and they worked out. We took ourselves from a place where we were average in terms of being competitive to a place where we were third fast overall in Round 2 of qualifying and ended up qualifying sixth based on our time in Round 3. We had an issue in Round 3 which was disappointing but based on where we were on Friday, I’m happy to have made the Fast Six. I’m pleased with the car, pleased with where we stand against the competition. Now we just have to work on a couple of little things to improve for the race and try to get the PennGrade Honda in Victory Lane.
