SHIFTING GEARS: The AP's Tim Reynolds reported IndyCar team Owner Bobby Rahal "has agreed to become chairman of the recently created USA Bobsled and Skeleton Foundation, where he will help oversee fundraising and development efforts for the sliding sports." Rahal said that he is "committed to the foundation for 'a long time,' which likely means through at least the 2014 Sochi Olympics." Rahal and the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation -- the foundation will "operate as a separate nonprofit organization -- began talks more than a year ago, after an introduction through mutual team sponsor BMW" (AP, 8/31).
