Fort Worth, TX – It seemed like Graham Rahal may never lose a Verizon IndyCar Series race again. After dominating last weekend on the streets of Belle Isle, Rahal won both races and entered this weekend’s race at the Texas Motor Speedway as the defending race winner.
The Rahal/Letterman/Laningan Racing driver started 11th in Saturday night’s Rainguard 600 and battled his No.15 Honda all night. But, by battling his car, he was far enough back to avoid all the carnage, and was one of just a handful of cars left running in the end.
Despite that though, Rahal said his car ended up being a rocketship in the corners in the end, and that aided in him finishing fourth tonight. It was his fourth top six in the last seven races, as he’d go from being 17th in the IndyCar standings and 100 points out of the lead in the points, to now being sixth overall, and just 40 points out.
He’s made up 11 spots in the standings and 60 points over just five races. Now,we head to a track at Road America where he’s finished third at in his lone two tries there.
Rahal is a championship contender.
