I really enjoy the race, was crazy the pack racing and more happy because Rahal won without any fuel saving or rain. Did someone heard Paul Tracy saying that probably Honda engine was more powerful than Chevy?

RAHAL EARNED HIS SECOND INDY CAR WIN IN TODAYíS MAVTV 500 AND BROUGHT THE TEAM THEIR SECOND WIN AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY

GRAHAM RAHAL, No. 15 Mi-Jack Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
ďYou donít know how good this feels. Itís been so long coming; itís awesome! Went we went back to 16th I was definitely a little worried there. I knew my car was really good. It wasnít the quickest up front, I struggled when I got to the front to be as fast as the Chevyís but those last couple of laps worked. I hung onto the bottom line. Iím just proud of these guys. The fans say ĎGrahamís just driving differentí but itís not me. Itís these guys right here that make things happen. I couldnít be more honored and thankful to have a group like this.

I feel like Steak Ďn Shake is kind of our good luck charm because they came on board and things turned around and DA Lubricant as well. Itís great to bring them this result. I think I was going four-wide and thinking ĎMan I havenít been four wide in six or seven years.í It makes you nervous for sure. You trust the guys. When youíre running up front youíre hoping youíre with all the best guys. I was racing with Kanaan, and Dixon and Power, and then Hunter-Reay a lot so to trust those around you helps a lot. It was a hairy race. I feel like this year we have been knocking on the door a lot. Weíve been so close and I feel like we deserved it before but hadnít gotten it yet so to get this one feels unbelievable.Ē

It was a hell of a race for the fans, and I'm sure a bit terrifying for the drivers. Robin Miller summed it up best (I'm paraphrasing), "all the old guys said it's too dangerous, all the young guys loved it"

Graham did a good job, but in all fairness, I'm still confused about his lack of a drive-through penalty. I didn't think the rules on pit equipment were open to interpretation on this kind of thing?
