Pompano Beach, FL, May 8, 2015 – Sean Rayhall and 8Star Motorsports finish in second place in race one of the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tire race one at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Rayhall accomplished his first second place finish and podium in only his third race in the Dallara IL-15.
The 20-year old, who qualified in third place with a time of 1m15.318s, had a great start in race one, quickly jumping into second place and almost completing the pass for first place in turn one. Rayhall used all his experience at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to keep second position until the end of the race over both Carlin Racing cars.
“I have no words to explain this feeling. It was a great race I have to thank 8Star Motorsports, Edvisors, Bass Egg, and everyone that has made it possible for me to participate in the Indy Lights championship. The team worked really hard and the car was amazing out there. Now we have to concentrate on race two,” said an emotional Sean Rayhall.
“I am really proud of Sean (Rayhall) and all of the 8Star Motorsports team! After only three races with Sean in the car we have accomplished this second place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Now we have to focus on race two tomorrow (Saturday) and try to finish in the podium once again,” said team owner Enzo Potolicchio.
Race two at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be Saturday at 1:25pm and you can follow it through http://www.indylights.com/results/live-timing and the Mazda Road to Indy app.
