Rahal Back In The Game

21-year-old Graham Rahal is back in the game, and with an old team. Rahal is returning to Newman/Haas Racing where he earned his first win, in his first start, back in 2008 at St. Petersburg. The young American will run the #02 Dallara in 6 of the remaining 8 races, with Quick Trim returning as the sponsor in 5 of the events including:

  • Toronto
  • Sonoma
  • Chicago
  • Japan
  • Homestead-Miami
Graham, who entered the season rideless after a deal with Newman/Haas Racing fell through, competed earlier in the year with Sarah Fisher Racing, Rahal Letterman racing and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing.

“It’s nice to be back with Newman/Haas Racing, a group that I have been with for so long and have a lot of fond memories with, and it’s also great to be reunited with Quick Trim who made this possible. Quick Trim really enjoyed their experience in May and we had a great run. We have been talking about this for a long time and I’m happy we were able to extend the deal. I’m looking forward to getting back in the car and back in the series. To know what I am going to be doing for the rest of the season feels so good. The plan is to go out there and pick up where we left off.” - Graham Rahal

“I am so excited to be able to watch Graham Rahal drive the Quick Trim® Indy Car again. I can't wait to see him burn up the track. I am looking forward to seeing the QuickTrim® car in Sonoma, South Beach and Chicago. Quick Trim is really going global with races in Toronto and Japan as well!” - Quick Trim Spokeswoman, Kim Kardashian

“We are delighted to have Graham back with the team. He has been an important part of our team over the past few years and we are proud of the history-making results we have accomplished together. We are also looking forward to returning to a two-car team and all of the benefits it provides." - NH Co-Owner, Carl Haas


Now that is good news! It's nearly criminal that Rahal didn't have a ride. He's a former race winner for crying out loud! A race winner in his rookie season!

This is terrific news.
