[May 14, 2009]  INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Former Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal's team is back in business.

Rahal announced Wednesday he has reached a deal with a new sponsor to put veteran Spanish driver Oriol Servia (OHR'-ee-ohl SER'-vay-ah) in the cockpit of his No. 17 car for this month's Indianapolis 500.

Servia started 25th in last year's 500 and finished 11th.

Rahal has not competed in the IndyCar series this year after losing his primary sponsor. The team's one-race deal is with DAFCA, a company that provides security services against cyber terrorism.

Rahal won the 1986 Indy 500 as a driver, and his team won another Indy title in 2004 with driver Buddy Rice.
