“In 2005, I bought a home on the same street as my new house," Rahal said in an exclusive interview. “I sold it (in 2008), but it always was my plan to come back to Chicago.; And my wife’s family and my family both are from the area. Chicago’s just a fabulous place to live. We love our house, and we love our street."
Rahal co-owns the Hilliard, Ohio-based Rahal Letterman Racing Team, just outside Columbus, with talk-show host and good friend David Letterman. Rahal said “right now, my plan would be to keep Rahal Letterman Racing in Hilliard."
“We’ve got a nice facility there and a lot of people working there," Rahal said. “I can be there a lot. The distance from Chicago isn’t onerous."
Rahal also said that he doesn’t plan to keep a home in Columbus after he sells his mansion there. He said he has “had some bites" from potential buyers, but “nothing to the level where I’m ready to say, ‘deal.’" Chicago Breaking News
