Izod IndyCar Series driver Helio Castroneves, a three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and a Dances With The Stars champion, almost missed last years Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
He was involved in a federal tax evasion case in Florida and was acquitted of most of the charges the weekend of the race. He flew from Florida to California, qualified for the race and finished seventh.
He called last years Grand Prix of Long Beach a renewal, to his racing career, his life and his focus. He went on to win the Indianapolis 500, his first since winning back-to-back at the Brickyard in 2001-02, and added another win at Texas Motor Speedway.
He also had a daughter, Mikaella, in December with his girlfriend Adriana Henao.
And of course, he won Dancing With The Stars in 2007.
Castroneves was in Los Angeles on Tuesday and met with members of the media at ESPN Zone next to Staples Center. He talked about what he remembers most about his return to the IndyCar Series in Long Beach last year, what he would like his daughters first word to be and who he thinks will win this year Dancing With The Stars.
