Engines start roaring at 6:52 p.m.; Rahal head to pit lane; rain drops start

We’re just seconds away from the race restart. There will be two laps at the start, followed by a 13-lap shootout. We have a double-file restart. Graham Rahal, of the No. 38 Service Central Honda, could get his car going for the restart. His crew members went to go get him a new steering wheel. He moved his car back into the pit lane. Rain starts coming at 6:56 p.m. Fans are starting to cover themselves. Kudos to all these fans for staying put. This is wild, absolutely wild.
