2014 Fontana: Rahal Letterman Lanigan IndyCar Race Recap


GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 National Guard Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It was a frustrating race. I don’t know what happened. The team thinks there might be something wrong in the right rear of the car like an upright or a bearing started to go. The car was pretty good for three stints and all of a sudden it was just looser than can be. We put 100 pounds of right front wing in and did everything we could to get it to understeer. It was really, really frustrating. We wanted to give the National Guard something to be proud of tonight. We have to thank the National Guard in IndyCar racing and motorsports in general. It’s a shame that it ended this way but we were very lucky to have had them in the series as long as we’ve had and we can’t thank them enough.”
