In the four races so far this season, Rahal has earned top-10 finishes with the highest being second in St. Pete, followed by ninth in Phoenix, fifth in Long Beach and seventh in Alabama. He is tied for third place in a series standings with Sebastien Bourdais, both with 119 points. He is looking forward to capitalizing on a big point payoff in May with two races, one of which is double points – the Indianapolis 500.


“I always think that the INDYCAR Grand Prix is one of the more important races of the year, just to get the momentum going for May and the Indy 500 and I certainly think that will be the case this time around as well. We have had a good start to the year. I have been pleased with the performance of our team on race day. Obviously we need to keep working on that and I need to work on making less mistakes myself in qualifying. It will be really important for the United Rentals team to have a strong May and collect a lot of points and then carry on from the Grand Prix into the Indy 500 and then on to Detroit. Normally Detroit is where we really start getting good. Hopefully we can start that process a little earlier this year.” -Graham Rahal
