Rahal finishes where he started - Press-Telegram
LONG BEACH - Graham Rahal did not have a good weekend.
The 21-year-old son of Bobby Rahal qualified in the No. 22 spot for Sunday's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach IZOD Indy Racing League main event.
That's where he finished, too, after he got into a wreck with Mario Romancini on the 60th lap. Romancini was attempting an inside pass on Turn 1 and his right front wheel hit Rahal's rear wheel, sending both into the tire barrier. The rear wing on Rahal's car was dislodged.
Rahal immediately got out of his car and went over and had a few words with Romancini, who was still sitting in his.
"I just said, `What are you thinking?"' Rahal said. "He said, `I'm sorry, I missed my braking mark a little.' It's a disappointing end to a disappointing weekend.
"We had problems with our drink bottle and our radio. It's been a tough day. To end it that way is just really frustrating."
