With his legal problems behind him, Helio Castroneves came back with a vengence at Indianapolis this month. Winning the Pole Position and now his 3rd Indy 500 shows he really hasn't lost his form. It's also the 15th Indy 500 win for Team Penske, another record.

Am I the only one who is disturbed by the fact that this man is being celebrated as a hero for avoiding tax evasion charges and then winning the Indy 500? The only reason the prosecutors couldn't seal his fate is because of the lack of good evidence that could help their complex case.
Great that he was found not guilty but besides that, this 500 was anything but memorable. No one could seem to pass and ABC figured out a way to once again load up the race with unnecessary Danica coverage. Anyone that seemed to have been able to challenge for the lead ran into trouble. Kanaan, Andretti, and Rahal all could have done something at least on restarts to make the racing interesting.
I was glad however to see Paul Tracy have a strong car. I would have liked to see him make a run at the front but I couldn't see that happening with the KV cars.
To actively root against anybody is just low, and I hope karma comes back at you with a vengeance
