NASCAR Helps U.S. Bobsled Team

A rather fascinating sports story: former NASCAR driver Geoff Bodine builds bobsleds. In the past the U.S. teams have used European-made sleds, but with Bodine's company entering the picture, that has changed, and the U.S. team has been having excellent results this season using Bodine's sleds.

In January ten NASCAR drivers will be in Lake Placid driving bobsleds in a fundraiser for the bobsled team. Among the racers may be Boris Said, whose father was a two-time Olympian.
