Graham Rahal

The son of 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal made history in 2008 when he became the youngest driver ever to win an IndyCar race with a victory in his first-ever start at St. Petersburg, Fla. Rahal is still waiting on win No. 2, but he has all the tools necessary to become a multiple-time winner. Rahal finished third in last year's Indy 500 after starting 29th. The driver from New Albany, Ohio, is a young, American talent and a win in the Indianapolis 500 would make waves because of his personality and pedigree, as well as the fact he is a second-generation star. He starts on the outside of Row 4 after qualifying 12th with a four-lap average of 223.959 mph in a Dallara/Honda.
