2016 marks the 100th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500 also known as the largest single-day sporting event in the world. As drivers and their sponsors prepare to kick off the racing season, one second generation racer is striving to make history – Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 15 Steak ‘n Shake Indy car. Thirty years after his father won the Indianapolis 500, top driver and personality Graham Rahal is set to kick off the Verizon IndyCar Series season at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, where he won his first victory. If Graham Rahal wins the Indianapolis 500 this year, it will make his family the second father-son combo to achieve this victory. The partnership with the beloved Steakburger chain has become a lucky charm for Graham, who narrowly missed the points championship for the IndyCar Series last year.
