Yesterday was a day we have all been waiting for, for a very long time! Back on track at Road America and how awesome it was. Top speeds reaching 190 MPH in 3 locations, 4.1 miles of racetrack winding up and down through the hills and trees, it's a drivers and fans dream location. We're back there to race in June 2016, and I can't wait to get back and turn laps already. Hope to see you all there. Photo cred - IMS Photo / Chris Owens

Today is a tough day, a day of remembrance of our friend Justin as he is laid to rest. It's a day to recognize what's most important in life, it's not victories, it's not championships or even Indy 500 rings, what matters most in life is life itself, love, and happiness. Justin was an incredible man, his family is the epitome of great people, of family people and loving people. If someday I can be half the man that Justin was, I will always feel a great sense of accomplishment. Take some time today to watch some old videos of JWil, take in the man he was and enjoy it. Learn from it. Become better from it. Lastly the auction will launch on September 14th featuring the drivers helmets from the Sonoma race. We will then progress on to many other items from all over the world. We plan for the auction to end around October 26th, so be sure there are items for you! Thank you all for your support.

As I reflect on 2015, I can only think that it was a year to remember for myself, and my Steak 'n Shake team. We started the season as a team that nobody thought would contend week in and week out, we began in a place that the "underdog" was probably a term people wouldn't use for us, because again nobody thought we could even be that. But with incredible teamwork, a drive and desire to succeed and prove the doubters wrong, we can officially head into the offseason with a sense of accomplishment. To all of my guys on this team who made this possible, you guys are the ones that deserve the credit, you are the team that made this season so fun, and I am fortunate to be your driver and friend. I can't thank you all enough for what you do, and I more importantly cannot wait to get back after it in 2016. To Steak 'n Shake, Maxim D-A Lubricant Company TranSystems Boingo Mi-Jack Products Honda DRIFIRE Sunoco Racing Gehl Company Jegs High Performance Wheels Up and everyone else who made this season so fun and successful, we could never do this without you. We appreciate your support more than you will ever know, and we can't wait to make all of you even more proud in 2016. Lastly my fans, you guys have been through good and bad, ups and downs. Thank you for standing by me, and let's continue to grow this sport together and get the IndyCar Series back where it belongs. Thank you.

Often our society makes one big mistake, they often feel that a measure of a man's greatness is how much money he has, or how many victories they racked up in their professional careers. But, the true measure of a man's greatness is his character, and who he is. Justin Wilson was GREAT, he won 7 IndyCar races, a Daytona 24 Hour win amongst other things, but those weren't his greatest accomplishments. Thanks to Road & Track Magazine for this article, and I would encourage all of you to read it, and think about what the true measure of greatness really is. http://www.roadandtrack.com/motorsports/a26504/wilsons-legacy-rahals-mission/

It's championship week, I'm off to San Fran and then Sacramento today for media activities. Missing my man JW. I'm going to give it everything we have to win this championship for him this weekend. His roll in advising me as my teammate in 2008 has always been the most influential teammate and stuck with me the most over the years. We were lucky enough to be teammates again at DRR in 2010 for a couple races, and the memory I will never forget is sharing the podium with him for what turned out to be his last podium finish and my 3rd victory. Please share and help raise money for the Wilson Children's Fund, the logo shown below will be available for purchase in stickers and shirts very shortly on shop.indycar.com Let's raise some money and help support a mans family who did so much for all of us over the years. Thank you.

Some things in life just don't make sense. I know there's always a plan, but this one doesn't make any sense to me. Justin was the epitome of a great guy, an incredible teammate, great father and a wonderful friend. My time spent with him will forever be time I cherish, and I learned more from him than any other teammate I ever had. He led by example, he cared about others and the greater good, and he had a genuine way about him that you always knew you were safe when he was around you on the race track. There's people you can trust, then there's Justin. Never did I ever worry about racing him wheel to wheel, not once. Justin, rest in peace my friend. My fondest memory I've ever had in racing was shared with you by my side, and I'm going to do everything I can to win this championship for you. Thanks for the memories, you're a badass.

Today was a frustrating day on many levels. Obviously being taken out by a driver who is part time, and not in the points race whatsoever has its own downsides, but I really don't want to focus on that. We're still in the championship hunt, and we will give it every ounce of energy and effort we have to win. What I do want to touch on is my good friend Justin Wilson. Most of you know Justin just as a badass race car driver, but what you don't know is the kind of man he is. In 2008 while teammates with JW, he was really the most helpful man I had in my entire career as a teammate to guide me, give me advice, help me when needed, and push my career further forward than anyone else. It was simply this, he isn't a selfish guy, he's a guy who cares about the bigger picture and about helping others become better. Today we witnessed something terrible, and all I can hope is the same JW that I have come to know, enjoy being around, and my friend will be back with us in full health very soon. JW, we know you're battling for your life, but don't give up, our days of racing around the track together and spraying champagne on each other aren't over yet my friend. Get well soon JW, we're all thinking about you. #PrayersForJustin

Not the qualifying we hoped for. The Steak 'n Shake machine was very good, but we got blocked on our lap and didn't advance. Instead we will start 13th. While that's not as bad as it could be, we wanted better. Lots of work to do tomorrow, but trust me this Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team is up to the task! Looking forward to it, and most of all please share and note the race tomorrow is on CNBC at 1:30 PM ET!!! That's a change of TV channels so please take note of that!

Wanted to let you all know about something really cool that's happening. My great partners Steak 'n Shake have announced that the Graham Rahal shake (Chocolate ice cream w/ m&ms) is back, and it's being served in 65 Ohio restaurants now through the end of the month of August. But that's not the cool part, the cool part is it's all for a great cause and $1 of every shake served will go to Fight SMA and help raise money, awareness, and hopefully help transform lives of those less fortunate than us. We are also working with Nationwide Children's Hospital, which for me is VERY cool. Being from Columbus, Nationwide Childrens has always been a huge part of the Rahal family legacy. My mom and dad raised millions over the years for the hospital, and I am very proud to now partner with Steak N Shake and try to accomplish the same goals. So, if you happen to be coming to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Honda 200 this weekend, or if you live in Ohio, please stop and grab a shake. It not only tastes amazing, but we're all paying it forward one delicious sip at a time! Thank you, and don't forget the appearance this Thursday from 4-5:30 at Easton Town Center!

This was tons of fun. I'm pretty sure we had a timing and scoring issue with the remote control cars on the drag strip, and the grape juice, well I guess I won't be stomping any grapes anytime soon! Need to work on my technique. Love to hear what you all think of this fun segment we did.

Off to Race Sonoma for a little media day action. Some grape stomping, Traxxas drag racing, and IndyCar Series simulator time! Court and I will be facing off and competing in all those things, then lots of interviews before we head to Denver for her race this weekend! What do you think, should I take it easy on her in our competition?! I'm thinking no chance haha.

That was one heck of a night Iowa Speedway. Finished P4, moved up to 2nd in the IndyCar Series points standings, but my God we had everything thrown at us. First early in the race was a right rear puncture. That put us 2 laps down. We fought back to the lead lap, just in time for an issue that wouldn't allow me to shift out of 6th gear! On a track where there is multiple shifts per lap, that really hurt us. We caught Dixon but that's when our issues really began as I couldn't get by him due to the car not downshifting. Unfortunately we had to make a pit stop while the pit speed limiter didn't work because it will only activate in 1/2nd gear, and we were stuck in 6th. Sadly we stalled trying to leave the pit box in 6th gear! We then fought back and recycled the ignition, and it began shifting for a couple laps, enough to leave the pits and restart. With this though, we were yet again down a couple laps to everyone. That's when the incredible team Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing dug their feet in and kept pushing hard. We made a great strategy call, extending our fuel load and laps we could complete and ultimately caught a yellow. With the car STILL stuck in 6th gear we made a pit stop and magically made it out of the pit box in 6th. On the restart we managed to take the fight to the field and got ourselves a top 4 finish. Thanks to Steak 'n Shake Maxim D-A Lubricant Company Boingo TranSystems Honda Mi-Jack Products Honda Racing/HPD and all other partners for sticking us and supporting this team. P2 in points, 3 races to go. Let's do this! Photo Cred - IMS Photo

So, I know Saturday nights are typically filled with time on the couch anyways, so you might as well tune in and watch us run around Iowa Speedway in the #IowaCorn300. We are currently third in the championship in the Steak 'n Shake machine, so its down to crunch time. Practice went ok today, looks like we don't have great qualifying speed, but I think our race car should be pretty solid again. We will have to fight for every position possible but a lot can happen in 300 laps around here! Spread the word, tune in to NBC Sports at 8 PM Eastern time, and catch a thrilling race around the 7/8ths of a mile oval here in Iowa.
