Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis
Verizon IndyCar Series
PRACTICE NOTES/QUOTES – May 7, 2015
RAHAL TOP HONDA AT SEVENTH FASTEST IN PRACTICE TWO FOR THE ANGIE’S LIST GRAND PRIX OF INDIANAPOLIS AND NINTH OVERALL FOR THE DAY
1) Scott Dixon 1:10.6971 / 124.197 mph
9) Graham Rahal 1:11.1422 / 123.420 mph
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Steak ‘n Shake Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was good to be the fastest Honda in the second session but we’ve got to get some predictability in the car. It’s pretty difficult to drive; it’s on edge which is how it’s been all year but as I said to someone earlier, if it’s on edge and fast, that’s cool but if it’s on edge and its slow, that’s obviously not so at least we’re at the fast end. We’ve got to find some more things to make the Steak ‘n Shake car faster to be good in qualifying and on race day.”
RLL AT INDY ROAD COURSE…. The Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis will mark the second Verizon IndyCar Series race on the 2.439-mile road course. Last year the team prepared entries for Graham Rahal and Oriol Servia. Rahal started 12th, ran as high as sixth and was 11th when he was hit by the lapped car of Montoya on a restart on Lap 51/82 and ultimately finished 21st. Servia qualified 22nd and was struck by the flying tire of another car after the standing start. He was forced to pit for a new front wing which put him out of sequence. Later he led seven laps but the team’s hope to capitalize on a caution flag didn’t pan out and he had to pit for a late-race splash of fuel which limited him to a 12th place finish.
NEXT UP: Practice 3 will take place tomorrow from 11:00-11:45 a.m. ET and qualifying will take place from 3:00-4:15 PM. Timing and Scoring information and liver streaming video is available for all sessions from www.indycar.com and includes live commentary by the IMS Radio Network.
