IndyCar driver Graham Rahal had a go at Goodyear tires after a tire problem ended Denny Hamlin chances of victory with just eight laps to go in the NASCAR Cup Series  Brickyard 400.

Hamlin was leading the race and faced tire problems with only 8 laps to go. Denny’s no. 11 car lost control and drifted into Turn 1 which made contact with the wall allowing Kevin Harvick to inherited the lead in the final restart and scored his third Indianapolis win.

Graham Rahal expressed his views on the incident and took a swipe at ‘Goodyear’ by stating that he’s glad that IndyCar doesn’t use their tires.
