Until last Sunday, only three drivers had won the Indy 500 four times: A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears. Mario Andretti won the Indy 500 once, falling into victory lane with a backup car.

Winning Indy three times is rare air, but Helio was stuck on that number for 12 long years. Bad luck. Poor strategy, accidents.

Helio Castroneves is the only active driver with a shot at more than three wins. And when he was released from Penske Racing last year, the general thinking was that Helio’s time had passed him by: “If he couldn’t win with Penske…”

So this year, Castroneves took an offer for a handful of races (including the Indy 500) with a bootstrap team, Meyer Shank Racing. He started well, stayed out of trouble, and took the lead on the last lap to win.

“The other drivers were playing checkers while Helio was playing chess,” observed two-time winner Paul Tracy, who had his own Indy 500 history with Helio Castroneves.

Helio Castroneves joins The Sounds of Brazil as co-host

Helio Castroneves with Scott Adams, at Emerson Fittipaldi’s offices in Miami, 1998.

I’ve known Helio for quite a long time, and three weeks after his first Indy 500 win in 2000, I invited Helio to co-host my weekly radio show. He even brought along his own music.

This week, I’ll replay that program – just as it aired originally – in honor of Helio Castroneves’s historic fourth Indy 500 win. Scroll down for listening times.

Listen Live this Friday

Be sure to join me for Brazil Back2Back, when Helio Castroneves brings a pair of his favorite Brazilian musicians to our streaming station this Friday (6/11). Top of the hour, at 11 am, 2 pm, and 5 pm CT for two in a row.
