Graham Rahal hopes to follow father’s footsteps in winner’s circle

In this May 17, 2014 photo, Graham Rahal poses for a photo after his qualification run on the first day of qualifications for Indianapolis 500 IndyCar auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis. No single driver or team has risen to the top this season. And with so much attention on Kurt Busch, who will become just the fourth driver in history to compete in both the 500 and NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, so many other elements of this magical race at historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway have been somewhat overlooked. "I don't know that there's a favorite at all this year," said Rahal. "I feel like it is extremely wide open at this point, even as a driver myself, I couldn't even tell you who I would pick. I have no clue." (AP Photo/Dave Parker)

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) – A Graham Rahal win on May 29 for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 would make him and his father Bobby Rahal just the second father son to achieve victory at Indy.

Bobby Rahal won the 1986 Indianapolis 500 and then helped his team win in 2004. Bobby is also a three-time IndyCar champion. Graham Rahal is one of the youngest race winners in IndyCar history.

Al Unser Senior won the Indianapolis 500 four times. His son Al Unser Junior won twice.
