LEEDS, Ala – What a day it was on Monday for the entire Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing group. On Sunday, when the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama was started, they were dead in the water.

After Dominating Phoenix Test, RLL Cars Struggle Some In Race

AVONDALE, AZ – Heading into the Verizon IndyCar Series race weekend at the ISM Raceway, it appeared that the Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing team should be the odds on favorites.

In the one session that Sato wasn’t the fastest, his teammate Graham Rahal led the way. Plus, Rahal was coming off of a runner-up finish in the season opener at…

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla – One team that I was surprised with on Friday’s Verizon IndyCar Series action was Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing. I was in the mindset that both Graham Rahal and Takuma Sato would come out and pick up where they left off from the test in Phoenix last month. Instead, both struggled to get up to speed in both practice sessions on the streets of St. Pete. Sato, was 22nd and 10th respectively in his No. 30 Honda. Rahal, was 12th and 20th respectively.
