As we prepare for our opening race of the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season at Barber Motorsports Park, there's one race at this immaculate road course that still has fans buzzing.

Simon Pagenaud’s dominance in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama was interrupted briefly by a late charge from Graham Rahal, who stole the lead from Pagenaud with a pass on Lap 82 of the 90-lap event that involved contact between the two drivers’ cars, only to see Pagenaud return the favor four laps later and drive on to victory.

It gave the Team Penske driver his second straight win of 2016 and sixth of his Indy car career, continuing the impressive start to the 2016 season that has seen the Frenchman finish in the top two at all four races and extend the championship lead.

For this week's Classic Rewind, we rewind back to 2016 and watch this battle go head-to-head, hammer-and-tong, and prove that yes - INDYCAR knows how to put on a show in Alabama.
