When Bobby Rahal was racing, he kept a picture of Michael Andretti in his workout room.
That's who Rahal wanted to beat more than anyone else on the track. And rest assured, Michael felt the same way.
Looks like they've passed on that vitriol to their kids.
Graham Rahal and Marco Andretti have developed quite a rivalry, which was only heightened when Rahal was blamed for a crash at Long Beach that catapulted Andretti's car into the air before it slid into a tire barrier.
IndyCar officials are loving the bitter feelings. They know a good rivalry, with two recognizable names, can only help build interest in their still-struggling series. They'd love to see an Andretti and a Rahal battling for the win Sunday in the Indianapolis 500.
