Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg
Verizon IndyCar Series
NOTES/QUOTES — Sunday, March 12, 2017
FIRST LAP CONTACT LIMITED STEAK ‘N SHAKE DRIVER RAHAL TO A 17TH PLACE FINISH IN THE FIRESTONE GRAND PRIX OF ST. PETERSBURG
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Steak ‘n Shake Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “We had a good start, I went around the outside there. I don’t even know where Kimball was. Obviously he was on my right rear somewhere. It’s just a frustrating way to start the year once again, just like last year. Except this year we struggled a lot more throughout the entirety of the weekend and we just can’t do that going forward if we want to be good in this series. Obviously there is some rethinking to be done as we go forward and figure out a better plan in case of an emergency. Our guys did a great job on the stops all day; they were just put in a bad spot. It was a tough day.”
NEXT UP: Round 2 of the Verizon IndyCar Series is the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, April 7-9.
