Watkins Glen IndyCar: Rahal tops opening practice
By:
Sep 1, 2017, 3:26 PM

Graham Rahal put his Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing-Honda at the top of the times at Watkins Glen, with a 145.712mph lap, as Hondas swept the top five spots.

Around the 3.377-mile course, Rahal was 0.21sec ahead of Alexander Rossi, who just announced his return to Andretti Autosport-Honda for 2018 and had a harmless spin at the Bus Stop chicane.

Max Chilton narrowly eclipsed de facto team leader at Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda, Scott Dixon, to claim third.

James Hinchcliffe was fifth for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports-Honda, as new teammate Jack Harvey clocked 20th, 1.8sec behind.

Spencer Pigot of Ed Carpenter Racing was top Chevrolet runner, in sixth, as Ryan Hunter-Reay had a lurid spin before taking seventh, just ahead of teammate Marco Andretti.

Championship leader Josef Newgarden was top Penske driver, just ahead of the man he memorably beat at Gateway last weekend, teammate Simon Pagenaud.

Charlie Kimball didn’t complete a representative lap before his car was dragged back to the paddock.
