RACE NOTES/QUOTES – Sunday, September 3, 2017
RAHAL FINISHED FIFTH IN THE INDYCAR GRAND PRIX AT THE GLEN
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was a good day. There was a lot of passing because a lot of us expected rain and with the downforce levels being all over the board, there were some guys that were really draggy and some guys a little more trimmed. I was right in the middle. There was a lot of passing going on all over the place. We’re going to fight on here. I didn’t have anything to lose (in the championship fight) coming here but as we saw today with (Josef) Newgarden, things can happen so fast. We’re out of winning the championship but we’re certainly not out of finishing in the top three or four. We’re seventh in the points and the way I look at it is, we didn’t score points in the first four races of the year but we were the hottest team through the middle of the season and it got us back in contention. We didn’t score as many points as we would have like but we have a lot to be proud of. We’re going to be in attack mode for sure. It’s a shame the last two races didn’t go our way when they should have because we would have been right in the middle of the title fight but that’s the way it goes. That’s racing. ”
NEXT UP: The series will take next weekend off before reconvening in California for the IndyCar Series season-finale, double points GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on September 17. Graham Rahal finished second last year.
