Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
Honda Indy Toronto – Streets around Exhibition Place
Verizon IndyCar Series
RACE NOTES/QUOTES – Sunday, July 17, 2016
RAHAL FINISHED 13TH IN THE HONDA INDY TORONTO; CONTACT AT START FORCED EARLY PIT STOPS
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Rousseau Metal Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “We got unlucky with that caution (Newgarden); it killed our strategy. Kimball hit us on the start and flattened our tire so right away we were behind the eight ball. That’s the way some of these have gone this year. We fight awfully hard but we have work to do.”
NEXT UP: The series will take next weekend off before returning to action on July 29-31 for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio. Graham Rahal returns as defending champion after having led a race-high 23 laps in the 2015 race to win his home event.
