Baltimore, MD- The biggest feud leaving Baltimore is going to be the Scott Dixon vs. Will Power beef.
That will be talked about during the next month while the series has the long break before the next race.
Another feud has brewed though and that’s between Graham Rahal, Rahal’s dad 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal, and 2013 Indy 500 champion Tony Kanaan.
On a late restart, Rahal was taken out by Kanaan on Lap 68. Rahal had a very good car and a great chance of winning leading some and running up front for most of the day. He had to settle for a 17th place finish after ending his day due to that contact.
“The blu eCigs car was awesome today I don’t have any complaints there,” said Rahal. “We should have won that race. That was my race but everything kept going wrong for us.
“I got a really good restart and I got hit by (Tony) Kanaan. I don’t even know how far back he was but I looked in Turn 2 and couldn’t even see him. The next thing I knew, I was trying to line those guys up for the exit and he just drove absolutely square into the side of me. I really don’t get that and I’m definitely going to have some words with him.”
Kanaan didn’t have much to say afterwards as he drove to a 15th place finish. He would have finished sixth but wrecked on the last lap.
Rahal’s dad took to Twitter after the race though saying, “What a punk move by Kanaan.Use to have respect for him but no longer.”
Kanaan came back and said, “Hey Bob this is my twitter handle. Just in case u need it.”
This is a new feud we will have to follow.

Baltimore, MD- Most of the talk all weekend here in Baltimore was the displeasure regarding the chicane on the front stretch.
