Rahal On Probation

INDYCAR announced Tuesday afternoon that they've place Graham Rahal on probation through Iowa for 'blocking and initiating avoidable contact' in Long Beach

The 6-race probation stems from the lap 22 incident in the 8th turn where, according to race director Beaux Barfield, Rahal was responsible for the collision that resulted in Marco Andretti's #26 Dallara getting in the air before hitting the tire barrier ending his day.

"Due to the inability of the No. 38 car to continue the race, a review of the on-track actions of Graham Rahal became a post-race issue," said Beaux Barfield, INDYCAR president of competition and IZOD IndyCar Series Race Director.  "All stewards have reviewed the incident and have decided that the on-track actions of Graham warranted probation because of driving that endangers on-track safety and adversely affects competition."

Rahal may protest the penalty.
