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.

    Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

    An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

    The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
