Graham Rahal will be sponsored by Steak ‘n Shake at this year’s Indianapolis 500. My Indy cohort, Bill LaDow, has the release on his site: SpeedwaySightings.com

Rahal is no stranger to burger-sponsored cars as he wheeled a McDonald’s ride in 2009.

Here’s a look at some other “track burgers” over the years:

Hardee’s also sponsored Scott Brayton and Tony Bettenhausen over the years.

Chip Mead did not qualify. I always wondered if he just walked over to the White Castle at the corner of 16th Street/Crawfordsville/Georgetown and asked them if they wanted to sponsor his car.
