Graham Rahal’s thoughts on IndyCar, the NFL, and College Football

PIT PASS INDY – SEASON 4, EPISODE 4 – Graham Rahal’s thoughts on IndyCar, the NFL, and College Football

January 23, 2024

Pit Pass Indy Show host Bruce Martin has an exclusive interview with Graham Rahal of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.

Rahal is attempting to rebound from a disappointing season in 2023 when he was bumped out of the 33-driver starting lineup for the 107th Indianapolis 500 by one of his teammates at the time, Jack Harvey. Rahal would later be in the starting lineup as a replacement driver for the injured Stefan Wilson at Dreyer & Reinbold Racing/Cusick Motorsports.

Rahal rebounded later in the season to win the pole and finish second at the Gallagher Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on August 12. He won another pole two races later at Portland for the September 3 race.

Rahal is also an avid Ohio State football fan and gives his thoughts on what the Chicago Bears should do with former Buckeye quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears have the first pick in the NFL Draft. Also, Rahal gives his thoughts on bitter rival Michigan winning the National Championship in the College Football Playoff.

In the world of racing, "Penske" means performance ... and winning. For good reason. Since 1966, Team Penske has won 44 national championships, 17 IndyCar alone. And last year, Team Penske recorded its second-straight NASCAR Cup Series championship and won its record 19th Indianapolis 500. Those are results that are tough to top.
