RACE NOTES/QUOTES – July 12, 2014
RAHAL FINISHED SEVENTH IN THE IOWA CORN INDY 300 AT IOWA SPEEDWAY
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 National Guard Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was a tough night. We got lucky to stay on the lead lap and be there at the end. It’s my fifth top-10 in my seven races here but we need to be better in order to win. Coming in to the event, I thought this was a race we could have won. I thought this was the place that we should be able to run up front but from the start of the race the car was extremely loose. I’m just happy to bring it home frankly. The National Guard guys did a great job with the calls. I thought that (pit on the last caution for tires) was the right call. I felt that if we had newer tires we would be able to get by the. The guys with the newest tires finished first and second. We made the right calls, we just have to find more speed.”
NEXT UP: The Honda Indy Toronto doubleheaders are next Saturday and Sunday, July 19-20.
