Paddock Buzz: Rahal, Rossi Keep Cool after Contact

Respect between a pair of veteran NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers allowed the fallout of a flat right-front tire to not be a hot-topic issue. Their contact cut Rossi’s tire, keeping him from being able to turn his No. “I think it was a little bit of a racing incident,” Rahal said. Rossi’s poor finish dropped him to 16th in the standings after two races, not the position he hoped to be in after struggling through last year’s winless season. It’s a lot different than last year when we were having these issues and didn’t have car speed. The win was his second of the season, having taken the second race last week at Barber Motorsports Park. Andretti Autosport’s Kyle Kirkwood, who won Saturday’s race, finished second in this one. The win was his first in the series in three starts; he finished second Saturday.
