SFR DRIVER GRAHAM RAHAL BRINGS MOMENTUM TO BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK
This Weekend Marks SFR's and Rahal's First Start at the Augusta of Racetracks
Birmingham, AL (Apr. 8, 2010)- Graham Rahal, of IZOD IndyCar® Series team, Sarah Fisher Racing (SFR) is spending the weekend in Birmingham; racing his No. 67 Dollar General Honda powered Dallara, while participating in the third race of the IZOD IndyCar Series season.
Rahal, who tested at Barber Motorsports Park earlier this month, will be one of 24 drivers competing on the 17-turn, 2.38 mile permanent road course located on the eastern fringes of Birmingham. This will be the young star's second race for SFR, after giving the growing team its first top ten finish in St. Petersburg just a few weeks ago.
"I'm looking forward to being back in the car at Barber," said Rahal, who will also compete in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach for SFR. "We had an opportunity to test here a few weeks ago, and we're coming off a strong run in St. Petersburg. We're going to keep working and hopefully bring home an even better result this weekend for Dollar General."
This weekend will mark team owner Sarah Fisher's second time overseeing the team from a different seat. She couldn't be more excited to give Graham another opportunity behind the wheel of the No. 67 Dollar General machine.
"We are looking forward to another great weekend with Graham at the wheel," said Fisher, who will open her 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season at Kansas Speedway on May 1. "Barber is a tough place, but hopefully the time we spent here before St. Pete with Graham should give us a good start to the weekend."
