COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three-time Indy car champion Bobby Rahal says he is coming out of retirement to try to qualify for the Indianapolis 500.

Now 61, Rahal retired from racing at the end of the 1998 season after winning 24 races, including the 1986 Indy 500. He captured back-to-back CART championships in 1986 and 1987, and a third in 1992.

If he qualifies, this would be Rahal’s 14th appearance at the Brickyard.

The May 25 race will be the 98th running of the 500.

Rahal’s team, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, will field the No. 61 car with sponsors to be named later.

Rahal co-owns the team with TV host David Letterman and Mi-Jack co-owner Mike Lanigan.
