FORT WORTH, Texas – Four members of the Dallas Cowboys got an inside look at the Verizon IndyCar Series as a guest of driver Graham Rahal for the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, with the race postponed due to lingering wet track conditions after daylong rain, the quartet was unable to see any race action.
Cowboys offensive lineman Tyron Smith, first-round draft pick and running back Ezekiel Elliott, quarterback Dak Prescott and defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon toured the team’s pit box and got up close to Rahal’s No. 15 Mi-Jack/RLL Honda.
“It’s good to have these guys out here,” Rahal said. “It’s fun to have them come and join us for a race. It’s kind of in their backyard since they’re now with the Cowboys. I’d rather have them see a good, clean show than all these delays, but it’s good to see they’re having some fun.”
Rahal even had some fun at the expense of Team Penske crew member Quinton Washington, who played defensive tackle at Michigan, pointing him out to Elliott, who starred at running back for Ohio State. Rahal, an Ohio native is an avid Buckeyes fan.
