Rahal Back With SFR

21-year-old Graham Rahal is switching rides again this season. After kicking off the season for a couple races with Sarah Fisher Racing, Rahal ran for Rahal Letterman Racing at Indianapolis before a one-off deal with Dreyer and Reinbold Racing at Iowa. The young American than signed back on with his former team, Newman/Haas Racing for the remaining events, sans Kentucky. But, with SFR running a two-car effort at the the Sparta, Kentucky oval, Sarah decided that it was best to replace the struggling Jay Howard with the up and coming Rahal in the #66 Service Central entry.
"SFR is ecstatic to welcome Graham back to our program with the Service Central No. 66 team for the Kentucky Race. The excitement in the shop has been contagious and we will work as hard as we can to give this program the merit it deserves for Service Central. We are very appreciative that Newman Haas Racing (NHR) gave us the go ahead to bring Graham on board for this race. He should be in a car as often as he can, and with the support of our partners, we were able to pull that off for him this weekend. Graham works very hard outside the car to be in the car, and he always takes that next step to make sure he is as prepared as anyone out there. The whole team believes in Graham's abilities, and I am truly looking forward to working with Graham as a teammate on track. If you think I had fun in Chicago last weekend, I expect this weekend to be even better!" - Sarah Fisher
"I'm thrilled to be back in the car with SFR at Kentucky this weekend, especially with NTB and Service Central who supported me at Mid Ohio. I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity, and I'm hoping we can give Service Central a great result in the No. 66 machine." - Graham Rahal
"Graham is a talented young driver who executes aggressive strategies that move him up the field. It is a win-win for Service Central. IRL fans understand the importance of maintenance and service. Service Central provides just that - exceptional service at affordable prices. Fans can rest easy knowing Service Central provides motorists with a nationwide warranty at nearly 1300 locations in more than 40 states." - CEO TBC Retail Group, Orland Wolford
