Graham Rahal is an American race car driver. He currently participates in the Verizon indyCar Series. He is the son of 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal for whom he also drives.
Graham is the youngest race winner in IndyCar history, which he accomplished in his Verizon IndyCar Series debut (2008). He grew up in racing visiting tracks around the world and carries on a championship winning lineage from his father Bobby.
Graham is a winner of the 24 Hours At Daytona, and the youngest Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Champion in history. In addition, he continues to hold a number of racing records for his accomplishments at such a young age. Graham currently drives the No. 15 National guard Honda in the Verizon IndyCar Series for Rahal Letterman Lanigan (RLL) Racing.
Graham completed his first test day on an oval for the 2014 season at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) today. He ran a total of 84 laps around the 1.5-mile high-banked oval in the No. 15 National Guard Honda in sunny but gusty conditions. The Verizon IndyCar Series will compete in the Firestone 600 here on June 7.
“Overall it was a good day even though we were fighting high winds,” said Rahal, who came close to winning at Texas Motor Speedway in 2012 before a slight brush of the wall with two laps to go forced him to settle for second place. “We made some good progress with basic chassis items and I feel like we are really getting somewhere. I am excited and eager to get to Indianapolis with Bill and the team to continue to work on our oval setup. And then come back to Texas Motor Speedway for the Firestone 600.”
