Rahal back year after near-miss in Texas, now racing for dad and still looking for win No. 2

Graham Rahal has certainly thought about that near-miss in Texas.

Rahal was leading with two laps left last June when he drifted too high and brushed the wall coming out of the fourth turn. It cost him a victory.

The IndyCar Series is back for its 25th race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Rahal, in his first full season driving for his father Bobby, is looking for his first win since a victory in his IndyCar debut in the 2008 season opener.

There have been six different winners in seven IndyCar races this season. Chip Ganassi Racing and Team Penske still haven't won.

Penske driver Helio Castroneves, tied with Marco Andretti for the season points lead, has three wins at the 1½-mile, high-banked Texas track.
