Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing
Harvest GP – Indianapolis Motor Speedway
NTT INDYCAR SERIES
RACE 2 NOTES/QUOTES – October 3, 2020
RAHAL FINISHED SEVENTH IN RACE 2 OF THE HARVEST GP AND SATO FINISHED 14TH
GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 United Rentals Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “Another seventh-place finish. I’m disappointed from the standpoint that I thought yesterday the United Rentals car had good pace but today we struggled a little. I think a lot of guys struggled more today just for whatever reason it was kind of a handful out there. We got two seventh-place finishes, we’re still sixth in the points and 22 behind Pato so we’ve got to have a good weekend in St. Pete, and we can get into the top-five. But we were just missing it a little bit this weekend. We’ll work hard and try to figure it out and come back stronger. In the end it was a good weekend for Turns for Troops and Soldier Strong with our United Rentals program. We raised a lot of money to help our veterans.”
TAKUMA SATO, No. 30 Keihin Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was a hard race today. Once again there were no yellows, so it was very difficult to make up positions and strategy-wise it was almost fixed. We fought, almost all the race long and in the end, we gained some positions. One guy pushed me off to the grass which was a shame because we lost a few positions but, in the end, we finished 14th after a hard battle which was a little frustrating but at least we raced hard today.”
NEXT UP: The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg INDYCAR SERIES season-finale will take place October 24-25.
