'Dancing' Winner Castroneves to Find Grooves at Homestead March 29
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.
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."
