Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing will expand its team for the Indianapolis 500 with four Honda-powered cars. RLL heads into 2023 with its full three-car lineup, which includes Graham Rahal, 2022 NTT IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year Christian Lundgaard and Jack Harvey, growing to four for the first time in 30-plus years of operation.
RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal says the team is deciding who will drive the car and an announcement should be made before the end of the year.
“We’re going to have a fourth car,” the 1986 Indy 500 winner told RACER. “We will announce it here, including all the details, possibly in the next 30 days. But there will definitely be a fourth car.”
Former RLL driver and race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, who also won the Indy 500 in 2014, is rumored to be on the team’s wish list.
“We’re not quite sure who will drive the car yet, but we have sponsorship,” Rahal said.
The Indiana-based team owns two Indy 500 wins, the first in 2003 with Buddy Rice and the last in 2020 with Takuma Sato.
