Rainguard Water Sealers 600 – Texas Motor Speedway
Verizon IndyCar Series
RACE NOTES/QUOTES – Saturday, June 10, 2017
RAHAL FINISHED FOURTH IN AN ACTION-PACKED RAINGUARD WATER SEALERS 600 AT TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY AFTER CLEARING MANY CRASHES
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Mi-Jack / Bobby Rahal Automotive Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was a crazy night with a lot of guys taking a lot of chances. After Indy and after this race, drivers need to have to take a deep breath and realize that this is dangerous stuff. I’m glad that our car doesn’t have a ding on it. We weren’t the prettiest thing out here tonight but the Mi-Jack boys worked very hard and I’m pleased with the end result. We raised a lot of money for Turns for Troops and our United Rentals initiative. I would have liked to have won it and I actually felt like I had the car to do it but I struggled with track position all night and I got lucky to not get involved in all those crashed. I’m obviously disappointed in myself to stall on that last stop but I’m probably lucky because I cleared the incident right after that. We got lucky to miss and avoid those crashes because all of them were right in front of me. I’m looking forward to Road America, which should be a good one for us. Coming off three top five’s in a row, hopefully we can go have another good points race with a good result.”
NEXT UP: The series will take a well-deserved weekend off before reconvening for Round 10 at Road America for the Kohler Grand Prix June 25.
