Graham Rahal in the No.15 PennGrade Motor Oil Rahal Lettman Lanigan Racing Honda ended the opening day at Barber Motorsports Park with the sixth fastest time overall setting the fifth fastest time of the second session.
Rahal took a fantastic second place here last season which began a fantastic season for the entire No.15 crew.
Speaking following the session, Rahal commented by saying:
Overall I feel pretty good with how we ran today. I feel like we have a decent car. Obviously I wanted to run a better lap at the end on new tires but it just didn’t quite work out. We are learning a lot of things that will help improve the car. We utilized the second session as a test session and kind of departed from where we were this morning and so far, so good. It would be great to win this race but, for us, we just need to get this season kicked off and there would be no better way to do that than to win.
