While many people looked up to and upon the accomplishments of Bobby Rahal, Graham knew him under one simple name – daddy.
There would be those who’d come up to him and say something, want an autograph, but yet there’s not a big deal or thinking something is unusual about it, as that’s what you come to know. As Graham said earlier this week, “The thing is, you grow up around it. You’re part of it.”
Things change as time goes forward, though, when you take the challenge of stepping into the shoes and trying to accomplish the same feats that he accomplished. Rahal said in trying to make his own mark in IndyCar is when he really began to appreciate everything that his dad accomplished.
