Leeds, Ala – Round three of the Verizon IndyCar Series season is set to take place this weekend at the 2.3-mile Barber Motorsports Park.

Can Graham Rahal Move 1 Step Further Up On Podium This Weekend in Barber

Leeds, Ala – The last two years, Graham Rahal has been so close to winning the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. In fact, he’s been the second driver to take the checkered flag in each of the last two years. In 2015, Rahal charged through the field, led 17 laps and was off pit strategy just barely missing out on winning. He’d finish second.
