Indy 500 Live: Graham Rahal In 6th Place With 70 Laps To Go

In a wide open Indianapolis 500 that has seen as many as 19 lead changes, Cleveland native Graham Rahal is sitting in fifth place with 70 laps remaining and is in prime striking distance.

Rahal opened the race in the No. 12 position after posting a 223.959 time, and has slowly crept up towards the front of the pack throughout the day. Fellow Honda drivers Takumo Sato and Scott Dixon each hold first and third place respectively, as Rahal will attempt to make up ground in the final third of the historic race with the checkered flag in his sights.

After starting the day in the pole position, Ryan Briscoe has fallen back to No. 14 after a series of slower-than-expected laps. Briscoe appeared to be having gear issues as he struggled to maintain his speed from earlier in the day, and looks to have fallen well off the pace.
