DUAL 2 RACE NOTES/QUOTES – June 5, 2016
RAHAL NEARLY RECOVERED FROM A BRAKE LINE ISSUE AT THE START OF THE DUAL 2 OF THE CHEVROLET DUAL IN DETROIT BUT THE TIMING OF A CAUTION NEGATED ALTERNATE STRATEGY THAT HAD RETURNED HIM TO THE FRONT AND HE FINISHED 11TH
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 United Rentals Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “Right away on the first lap off the grid the brake line came loose so we came in to fix that and I didn’t get to take the start which is frustrating. That was pretty much the tone of our day, a whole bunch of bad luck. Right when we were looking like we were back in contention, it went yellow for Hawksworth which killed us because we were on our in-lap for the pits. It is what it is. That pretty much takes us out of contention for the championship for this year so we might as well go have some fun now.”
NEXT UP: The team will return to Indianapolis tonight and finish preparation of the race cars to be used in Texas on Monday and Tuesday. The transporter will depart the Brownsburg shop en route to Texas Motor Speedway for the Firestone 600 early on Wednesday morning. The race will be broadcast live on NBCSN beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 11.
