Graham Rahal fails to make Indy 500, Last Chance Qualifying Complete

Graham Rahal has failed to make the Indianapolis 500.

Sunday offered 12 drivers a chance to tale the pole for the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500. For four others it offered a last chance to make the field after they failed to be one of the 30 fastest on Saturday.

Three Rahal Letterman Lanigan cars made up the field for last chance qualifying; Graham Rahal, Christian Lundgaard, and Jack Harvey. The other car was Sting Ray Robb of Dale Coye Racing.

For Lundgaard this week offered a stark contrast to his fortunes last week where he won the pole for the Indianapolis Grand Prix enroute to leading 13 laps and a fourth place finish. The 21-year-old however was quick enough to make the Indy 500 and will start 31st.

A rookie, Sting Ray Robb has appeared in all five races this season. His best finish was 16th in the season opener at St. Petersburg. He has failed to finish in four of the five races. Robb will start the 500 from the 32nd spot on the grid.

Harvey had appeared in all five races this season with a best finish of 13th at Long Beach. He finished 20th last weekend in the Grand Prix at Indianapolis. Harvey last failed to qualify for the 2022 race at Texas. He will start the 500 from the 33rd spot.

Rahal, the most accomplished driver of the four with six IndyCar wins, criticized his family run team earlier this week.  In five starts this season he has finishes of sixth, 24th, 12th, 17th, and most recently 10th. Rahal’s father Bobby missed the 500 previously.
