Two-time Indy 500 winner to race in March’s Indy Speedjam 300

From "Dancing with the Stars" to driving IndyCars--2-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves will kick off his most widely anticipated IndyCar season yet at the Speedjam Indy 300, March 29, 2008, at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

On Tuesday night (Nov. 27), Castroneves and partner Julianne Hough received perfect scores for their freestyle quickstep dance and earned the majority of America’s vote during ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" competition. Castroneves beat out former Spice girl Mel B and Marie Osmond to clinch the title and disco ball trophy.

"It will look so good between my two Indy 500 trophies," Castroneves told the Associated Press of his new hardware.

After missing the checkered flag last year at Homestead-Miami Speedway by 0.0147 of a second, Castroneves now sets his sights on winning another competition: The Speedjam Indy 300 at his "hometown track."

“Winning at Homestead-Miami Speedway would be great,” Castroneves said. “I’ve come in second twice. It would be great to finally win in Miami, at my hometown track in front of my friends and family.”
 
“The talent and charisma Helio displayed in winning 'Dancing with the Stars' matches the sizzle he brings to Homestead-Miami Speedway every year,” said track president Curtis Gray. “As a Miami resident, Helio represents our town with the flair of a true champion--on and off the track, on and off the dance floor. Look for him to put on another show here at Homestead-Miami come March 29.”
