INDIANAPOLIS – Helio Castroneves is back at his favorite track chasing history yet again.
All the three-time Indianapolis 500 winner wants to do Sunday is join the prestigious four-time winners club.
After starting here with back-to-back Indy wins, a pole win and a second-place finish to Team Penske teammate Gil de Ferran, it looked like Castroneves might never be stopped. Since his last Indy win in 2009, though, Castroneves has finished ninth, 17th, 10th and sixth — and hasn't started on the front row since taking his last pole in 2010.
This year, the Brazilian says he is hungrier, and he will have Roger Penske and four-time 500 winner Rick Mears on his radio. Plus, he'll be driving the Pennzoil car, the one Mears made famous in the 1970s and 1980s.
